Broad & Park Esso
Hamilton Township Public Libary Local History Collection
This ESSO (acronym for Eastern States Standard Oil) station was operated by Mr. Costello in the early 1950s and later became Gadsby's. The last proprietor I recall was Ed Moneypenny. The ESSO name changed to HUMBLE in 1960. Remember the advertising, "Put a tiger in your tank"? In 1972, EXXON became the unified name for all former ESSO outlets.
