|Doc Robert's Shell|
Another reason to miss the 1970's was transportation. Before the big imposing building known as Kent Square arrived, you had downtown gas stations selling petrol for 29 cents a gallon (look close beneath the hanging Shell sign). This was Doc Roberts place on the corner of Lee and South Main.
Just up the block was Heavener Chevrolet where I bought my black VW Beetle, seen in an earlier post, for a pittance. It cost less than $4.00 to fill up the tank from dead empty. This building is now part of the town municipal buildings between Clay and Miller Streets.
