Knights Oil

Willimantic, Connecticut

A classic old gas station design with white tile panel siding and a single service bay. It's at the edge of the built-up part of town, surrounded by strip malls and the three or four large, 6-12 pump "convenience stores" that put it out of business. Seems to have later served as headquarters for a heating oil and burner service company, but that too is gone. The convenience stores have lots of pumps, but no service bays at all.

No popping in to get your car serviced or a tire fixed any more. Now it is an appointment at a dealer or mechanic's shop which might be able to get you in next week.
