Monroe gas stations: Part 3 of 3
This photo shows a gas pump in front of the Geiger Marty & Baebler Garage, which was located on the west side of the 1200-block of 17th Avenue on the site of the present parking lot for the Monroe Middle School. The 1915 Sanborn fire map showed that a 280-gallon gasoline tank was buried at that location.
We will conclude our tour of gas stations with a few stations scattered about Monroe that were no longer along the highways by 1950s. One of those was at 1723 11th Street, across the street north from the post office. Some will remember that it was (Malcolm) Marti’s Texaco Station in the 1960s.
