PURITY 99 GAS TEAM
They’re all gone now, the 700 Purity 99 gas stations that eyefulled a motorist on the Canadian Prairie. Some of the early ones had rounded corners, sort of deco style, some with barn door like bays and in the 50’s and 60’s they were windows and chrome with jaunty angles. Service stations is what they were called, with owner-operators who played on Oil Co. semi-pro baseball team that found its opposition in railroaders and granges and occasional barnstormers like the House of David, Bismarck Churchills or the Texas Colored Giants whose rounded brightly painted buses were seen getting filled with Purity 99 Gas. Black Round Wool Crown and 3” Visor, Red and Black Embroidery on White Felt Logo.
