Permit No. 33 Hwy. 169 S. Viking Oil Co. Is Now In 20Hi Year Of Successful Business In Algona! On the 10th of July, 1936, the Viking Oil Co. was founded here by Mr E. B. Carlson. The firm, which combines a modern service station with a thriving bulk wagon service, started off with a small filling station and just two tanks. Since that time, the installation has been expanded from time to time until it presents an appearance as shown in the below photograph. .Repeated modernizing and enlarging programs have occurred during the twenty year life here of Viking Oil. A modern garage addition, shown at the extreme left in the picture, was erected in 1946, to house up-to-date lubrication, battery and wheel balancing facilities. The station and office Were enlarged in 1951, to accomodate a growing accessories and oil business. The company began operations with two bulk tanks. There are now six large bulk,tanks, with a total capacity of 82,500 gallons. Of this, 30,000 gallons are In gasoline, and 52,500 gallons in fuel oils. , ROBINSON ALGONA WAYNE FEEDS SWIFT'S &AGRICO CHICKS SfiRVICl Greatest Gasolene Bargain In The Whole NEW •*.' .. • i AT REGULAR PRICE ' " , ,.
