We remarked on Face Book we gotta stay out of the old WHS yearbooks at the River Museum. We always come across something to share with you.
Do you remember Richard’s Ashland Service owned by the Livolsi brothers? We believe the Richard is for Wellsville resident Dick Livolsi. Ashland was the oil company that produced that brand of gasoline. The service station was located at 9th & Main in Wellsville. It is now a parking lot for the Wellsville Carnegie Library.
The picture of the service station is from an ad sponsoring the 1962 WHS yearbook. That was operating back in the days when an attendant pumped your gas, checked your oil and cleaned your windshield compliments of the station. They would even check the air in your tires if asked. All that is a trip down memory lane in itself, even if there wasn’t a picture.
A gas station once stood on this lot
