Photo 27-ICL-23


The shell station is now Kennedi Auto Sales and across the street is a gas station still, no longer Mobil though. From my memory it was a citgo and then now a Phillips 66

It’s located off IL RT 13/ Old St Louis Rd and 74th street

I Leased this gas station from Shell in 1970 and 1971

A Shell service station, 7310 Old St Louis Road, Illinois State Route 13, Belleville, Illinois. South 74th Street is seen winding it's way south, with Illinois 13 seen going off to the SE. View is looking south.

I believe the field just behind the Shell gas station was owned by Bill Schaumleffel. His farmhouse would be just off of the top of the screen about center of the picture. Nowadays is where McDonald’s and the old Kmart store stands.
