  1. Mike Miller says:

    That’s the old “Colonial Amoco”. Owned and operated by McMahan Oil Company by my grandfather Dewey McMahan and eventually my father Bill Miller. I had the AMOCO pump globe in my bedroom growing up in the 70s.

  2. Tracy Cohee says:

    Is this the corner opposite where the Shell station sits on Washington Street (a block up from Christ Church)??

  3. Tim Miller says:

    Colonial Amoco – built by my Grandfather (Dewey McMahan) in 1959 or so. It was his pride and joy at the time. Dad and I sold it to the Ullah family (U5) in the late 90’s and they converted the service bays to a convenience store.

    The floors of the shop had “Hydronic” heating which features hot water pipes running through the poured concrete. Colonial never was a huge pumper for us but certainly a downtown Easton fixture.
