WGHF Ocoee Sunoco

Four unidentified men and a woman pose in front of the Ocoee Garage and Service Station. Judging by the woman’s dropped waistline, this photograph was taken sometime in the mid-1920s. Settings like these, in which the Winter Garden Heritage Foundation has no definite information, often bring to mind “fill in” stories. Pouring over this picture, one could easily imagine that the young woman, standing demurely at a respectable distance from the staff, just pulled up to the station in her flivver, possibly to have the gas tank filled — at 23c per gallon. It’s not known exactly where the business stood, but it might have been located in the vicinity of the Ocoee railroad station. The WGHF thanks the Maguire family for donating these photos of Ocoee’s history.
