Soulsby Shell Photos

The famous Soulsby Shell station in Mt. Olive, Illinois.
This station is situated on the 1930-1940 alignment of
Route 66 between Litchfield and Staunton Illinois.
(This is the section that runs to the east side of I-55 here.)
This station was built in 1926 and pumped Shell gas exclusively
for 65 years. Photo taken 7-19-2004 by David Backlin.
