East Side Service Station

From about 1928 to 1931, the East Side Service Station was located at the intersection of Cleveland Road and McKinley Street in Sandusky, Ohio. In 1928 the East Side Service Station used Pennzoil products.

An advertisement which appeared in the November 21, 1928 issue of the Sandusky Register stated that the East Side Service Station offered Sandusky’s first enclosed drain pits. The staff specialized in greasing and crank case draining. High test gasoline was sold at the station.

An advertisement featured in the August 3, 1929 Sandusky Star Journal stated that the East Side Service Station was open all night. The station provided restrooms for travelers, and sold refreshments.
