After the Hurricane of 1938, the small filling station on the north corner of Main and Prescott Streets was replaced by this larger one built on the south corner. Later, Lancaster resident Frank Ponte operated his business on the site for 27 years, until 1972. This photograph shows the station as it looked in 1965. Note those low prices on the gas pumps.
