(29) 150 E. Third Street

150 E Third"Hobart's last large ice storage building (built by Barnes) was here. It burned in the 1920s and a filling station (Tower Mobilgas Service) was erected. This has been remodeled into rooms for the present Costume Shop."

Images (links open in a new window):
♦ Outside the Tower Mobilgas service station in June 1948: John Hagerty, Don Nocarotta and Frank Vedopi, and Frank Vedopi's 1938 Ford.
♦ In this snapshot of the Deep River nearly swamping the Third Street bridge (taken October 11, 1954), you can see the Tower Mobilgas behind the trees at left. Another flood photo includes a dim view of the gas station in the background at left. (That may be the same flood, although someone has written "approx. 1953" on the back of the original.)
