City Service Station

By Bill Belt
City Service station located on main street in downtown Marion.
The person in the photo is Audus Raymond Belt (my father). He ran that station (as a one person operation) in the early 1930s.
He seemed always to have an old T-Model and loved cars. I recall him telling me that he quit the staion and went to work for Kroger and later the Red Front Grocery (which was directtly across the street) for around $6.00 a week.
I don't recall how much he made at the service station. He is buried in Mapleview Cemetery and my mother is now living in Elizabethtown.
