I Nnmp 00eo,00in00 To This Community STANDARD Standard Oil has served the community with quality petroleum products for forty-two years. Standard Oil was the first bulk plant in Mt. Pulaski to store gasoline. "Coal Oil Johnnie" previously had a kerosene storage tank in the west edge of the city near the railroad tracks. A new warehouse and bulk plant was .bmpleted in September of 1919. Louis Sams started as Agent at this time. He delivered with a 300 gallon tank mounted on a Model T Ford. John Reinders, Dave Connolley and Byron Schaffenacker assisted him as drivers during the next 27 years. Mr. Sams retired after he fell and broke his leg in 1946. C. A. Harvey took over as Agent and was assisted by his son and E. J. Maxheimer as drivers, for the next 21/ years. In 1949 Mr. Harvey was transferred to the Springfield bulk plant. January 7, 1949, Charles W. Hanslow started as Agent. During the past 12k years E. J. Maxheimer, Henry Feese, and Harold Scheuler have served as drivers. Today we are serving the community with modern 1200 and 1500 gallon tank wagons equipped with dual pumps and meters for your safety. FOR QUALITY PETROLEUM PRODUCTS .
