As a kid in Montreal I remember Supertest (orange sign); White Rose; BA with a
I miss the old brands.
As a kid in Richmond in the 1970's we had Esso, Shell and Chevron (Standard), but also we had Gulf (taken by Petro Canada), Union 76 (taken by Husky), Home and Texaco (taken by Esso) and Pacific 66 (taken by who knows...) I may be missing one.
I know in Victoria the corner of Burnside and Douglas was a Union 76 station until the late 70's.
Soon it will be Co-Op only. Esso sold their stations in BC to 7-11 (still branded as Esso) and Chevron just sold theirs to Parkland
Fuel (will remain branded as Chevron)
circular red/green yin-yang sign; Texaco "the red star with the green T" as the radio guys said; Champlain which was owned by Charlie Trudeau, father of PET, and Fina, a Belgian outfit that appeared in the 50s.
Shell and Esso of course, but never saw Chevron or Amoco or Mobil (all offshoots of Rockefeller's Standard Oil that was broken up) unless we were in upstate NY or Vermont
