While we're in the area, I found this 1930 image of a Richfield station at 1601 Vine Street (that's the NW corner of Selma and Vine). There was still a gas station there in 1941, but the layout looks different on the aerial I posted yesterday. The building behind is on the south side of Selma.

The window under the large "AUTO" sign belongs to realtor Clifford F Reid at 6308 Selma Avenue (1931 CD). The windows to the right bear the name of engineers' suppliers DuBose & French Inc at 6310 Selma Avenue, and I can also see the word "[P]RINTS", which probably belonged to the Arrow Blue Print Co at the same address. The sign at the far left is for Pratt & Lambert Varnishes, which were distributed by the Mathews Paint Co at 1559 N Vine.
