Additional comment by J. Eric Freedner:
ANCHOR OIL - I discovered it was a corporation, with HARRY BARKETT of Miami as
its chief officer. Barkett also owned BARKETT OIL COMPANY, a wholesaler,
whose trucks I used to see here and there. I kind of thought they were
PURE OIL distributors for awhile but I may be wrong.....anyway, it now seems
likely that in the course of business, Mr. Barkett learned of some stations
for sale, or needing branding, or maybe he just built a few new ones in the
heyday of Florida development--it was practically a can't-lose idea back then.
Perhaps he liked ships, or had been in the Navy, whatever....
