Polly Gas Dome, Metal Porcelain, Advertising Sign, Repro.

 

The history of Polly Gas is hard to find and the few sources give conflicting information. One writer says Polly began as a chain of independently owned stations selling gasoline in California in the teens and twenties. This source says that Polly became a part of Wilshire Oil of Los Angeles during the Depression. Wilshire was founded in 1910 according to two sources and in 1919 according to another. 

In any case, Polly stations were a common sight on the West coast from the twenties through the fifties before and after the war. Around 1960, Wilshire was bought by Gulf and Polly stations became Gulf stations.
