Gasoline Alley

Gasoline Alley has been around a long, long time. The building
was on Highway 49 alongside the canal and that separated
the business from Live Oak Lane. Doc Lewis’ Veterinary
clinic was across the canal from Gasoline Alley in the 1960’s.
Luther road was a quarter mile down 49 toward Grass Valley.
Locals recall a beer bar inside along
one side of the convenience store/gas station.

I can recall walking back into this store as a young boy.
The floor squeaked like Rankin’s or Klumpp’s.
I have an older picture of this place, 1910 era. There was
a free car camp behind the store then. I am thinking my sketch reference
is around 1920. The reference is from the Placer County Archives.
