The West Gulf Sales and Service Station was built in the late 1940s on what had previously been vacant land.

I'm not sure when the service station shut down. It was converted to a photography studio at some point. Since , it has housed the restaurant Vin Rouge.

On a site plan filed in 2008 by Ninth Street North developer Glenn Dickson, 2000-2010 Hillsborough was noted at "Future Phase" - occurring, presumably, sometime after long-delayed Phase II of the Ninth St. North development.

Damn, another truck fell over. :)

It may not be the most efficient way to do an oil change, but how else are you going to get under the engine, dig a pit?

Just rotating the tires, I think. The truck was a little too big and long for the station bay and lift.

Probably a message from the Teamsters Union! Oh, wait, this isnt Jersey!

The Gulf Station on the right was Russell West's Gulf Station in the 1950's.
