IN ALGONA On the 10th of July seventeen years ago, the Viking Oil Co. was founded here by 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 be^n expanded from time to time until it presents an appearance as shown in the above photograph. Repeated modernizing and enlarging programs have occurred during the seventeen 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. Roy Stoeffel, who operates the station under direction of Mr Carlson and always has a friendly greeting for customers, began with Viking when it was founded 16 years ago, and has continued there ever since, except for military service. Melvin "Red" Christiansen, with four years service at Viking, handles the bulk wagon delivery service, and covers a territory of 50 miles radius. The bulk wagon handles fuel oil, lubes and greases and tractor fuel, in the city and in the farm areas. Viking, with its popular station, and its complete bulk wagon service, has a well-diversified set of services, and looks forward to many more years of service to Algona and the Kossuth county community.
