1940’s Gulf Service Station on the Circle – (Photo courtesy Miami Springs Historical Society and Museum.)
In 1941 G. Carl Adams, the half brother of Glenn Curtiss & Mayor of Miami Springs opened the Miami Springs Service Station on the Circle at Palmetto Drive. The little white building on the left served as Adams’ office. In the late 1940’s Miami Laundry occupied that little building. In the 1950’s it became the location of Barry’s Cleaners operated by Joe & Eileen Baggett .
In 1946 former B.F. Goodrich service manager Jim Curry moved to Miami Springs and bought the service station. Curry changed it’s name to Jim Curry’s Standard Oil Service Station & operated it there for many years.
