North Star Photos

A North Star Canada photo taken in the 1950s by Vern Lozinsky.
This station was located about 50 miles north of Hudson Bay, Saskatchewan
on what is now # 9 highway. At the time it was a gravel Forestry road,
but today it connects to Flin Flon, Manitoba.
Vern states that North Star Oil, Ltd. started in Canada about 1911 and sold
out to Shell in 1961. They had 1000 service stations and 350 bulk oil plants.
