Farewell to the gas station at Cambridge Street and Terry Avenue. It’s going to be a Convenient MD location.
Fifty years ago, it was an Esso station under the ownership of Jack Kilmartin. The station went through many owners, but he held it the longest. These ad shots are from exactly 50 years ago, April of 1969.
Other material from that same location:
Diagonally across the street, 50 years ago this month, Mister Donut was born.
Mister Donut, across from Terry Ave., c 1975. Opened April 1969.
Also this month, Town Meeting approved ordering a row of temporary, portable classrooms at the high school (now Marshall Simonds Middle School) similar to the ones already installed at Memorial Elementary School across the street.
