From Bluffton's Christmas past

Check out Santa and his reindeer on the Sinclair

gas station at the corner of Main and College, a la 1950s

Imagine for a moment that a Sinclair service station is at the corner of College and Main (specifically in the front lawn of the Bluffton Public Library).


If you can imagine such a scene in December in the 1950s, this is what you'd see.


The Koontz brothers - Joe and Jack - operated the station. This was the Christmas decoration on the top of the station.
