1. OOPS - STILL NADA, BUT.....
NEW ITEM FOR THE SITE:
From Rob Stanton of VA to Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 07/13/12, 3:34 PM - "Tankar Stations on Old Stomping Grounds":
|I was checking on some family things this afternoon on the internet and came across your site, particularly the old photos and memories of the Tankar Gas Stations. My grandfather, B.M. Stanton, was the owner of the stations and developed the idea of using the rail car as the station’s office. He sought locations that were adjacent to rail spurs, and had quite of few marketing gimmicks that he thought would be good for business. One was to give away free bars of Ivory soap to customers who bought a certain number of gallons of gas. This was great until he realized that the customers got offended because the station attendants were implying that the customers’ personal hygiene was lacking. When my father and brother cleaned out the old company warehouse a year or so ago, they found boxes and boxes of Ivory soap stuffed away on the shelves.|
Another marketing idea was a gift with purchase…the gift being a glass
piggy bank in the shape of a Tankar. I have attached a photo of the
bank…..I would be interested in buying any Tankar Station items or
photos that can be located….along with another late 40’s photo of the
Tankar Station being built at 37th Street and Hampton Blvd in Norfolk.
The masonry block building would be the Company’s HQ and warehouse until
the 70’s, when it was relocated to Northampton Blvd in Va Beach.
The Tankar Stations were closed to make way for ROBO Car Washes at many of the locations, which continued to be operated by my father and brother until a year or so ago. My brother still owns the car wash on Pembroke Avenue near Buckroe Beach.
|37th Street and Hampton Boulelvard, Norfolk, VA|
Thanks for the memories.
From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA to Rob Stanton of VA - 07/13/12, 8:12 PM:
GREAT STUFF!! Thanks for sending it along.
Actually the site is not mine, but I have provided a lot of content.
The webmistress is the Cc: addressee to this e-mail. She has been having computer problems, so I cannot tell you when your images and narrative will be posted.
Again, thanks for sharing,
Thank you so much,
I loved those stations! I always tried to persuade my mama into
going there just because I thought they were so very cool. If I ever
located one of those piggy banks, I'd scoop it up myself for my
collection of nostalgic artifacts! Maybe we should keep a search on eBay
After this seemingly interminable delay, your wonderful images and text are at last posted, Ron:

In our family, chicken soup season opens on Rosh HaShana and closes on Passover. I like to make the soup; it is easy to make, low-cost, and healthy. I use turkey, along with chicken, in the soup because turkey is higher in iron. My kids like to eat the soup with noodles."

Always trusting in Jesus my Lord,
One of the pictures reminded me of a very dear friend
who is so utterly faithful to her son.
A father and mother kissing their dying
little girl goodbye. If you are wondering why all the medic people are
bowing: in less than an hour, two small children in the next room are
able to live thanks to the little girl's kidney and liver.
OH, WOW! Thanks, Bill!
|From www.ajokeaday.com - 07/29/12:|
A police officer sees a man driving around with a pickup truck full of penguins. He pulls the guy over and says, "You can't drive around with penguins in this town! Take them to the zoo immediately."
The guy says okay, and drives away. The next day, the officer sees the guy still driving around with the truck full of penguins -- and they're all wearing sunglasses. He pulls the guy over and demands, "I thought I told you to take these penguins to the zoo yesterday?"
The guy replies, "I did. Today I'm taking them to the beach!"

Rejoice and be merry on Simchat
And give honor to the Torah!
For her reward is greater than any business,
More valuable than jewels.
We shall rejoice and be merry on Simchat Torah,
For it is for us strength and light.
