ALBION – In this picture from the early 1960s we see the Atlantic gas station that was located at the southeast corner of routes 31 and 98 in Albion.

Rollie Kast operated this service station at the time. Note the three overhead doors.

In the righthand background, we see a new Marti’s Motel. This site was later acquired by the Eckerd Drug Co. and now serves as a location for the Rite Aid store.
