Hohenshell's Mobilgas

Lincoln Highway travelers passing through Ames in the summer of 1938 could get their automobile filled with Mobilgas while enjoying popcorn, root beer or ice cream at the Dutch Mill.  Turl Shorty Hohenshell operated his Mobil Service Station (223 Lincoln Way) at the intersection of Kellogg and Lincoln Way until 1957.  This photo looks east along Lincoln Way from near the Kellogg corner.  Notice the popcorn stand behind the pole and the many houses that line the highway between Duff and Kellogg.
