Here are some from Alamo Heights... Forgive me if the images don't come out right, I've included the addresses so you can google map them in case they don't display properly.

http://goo.gl/maps/DCLwO Mobile 5426 Broadway @ Austin Hwy

http://goo.gl/maps/qNLCH Conoco 6403 Broadway @ College Blvd Was most recently Rusty Bucket BBQ with substantial improvements to the property, but you cannot tell that from this pic.

http://goo.gl/maps/26rmA 615 Austin Hwy @ Albany The former Charlie Moore Texaco Now Replaced by Ken's Tire & Service Center (Ken's Tire used to be at Broadway and Hildebrand but the property was sold to build a bank)

http://goo.gl/maps/TSUUrThis used to be a Mobil Station, but is now a RAM Car Service Center 6510 N New Braunfels & Brees

Not in Alamo Heights, but here are 2 nearly across the street from each other 2327 & 2324 N. St Mary's

Default Old Gas Stations in San Antonio

Thanks to everybody.
With your help , I was able to locate the Texaco station on corner of
St. Mary's & King William Ave.
...
Also this photo below close to my old neighborhood....
I never knew that this was a gas station @ Flores & Nogalitos and

the building on the right was established in 1876.That's old !
And...heading south on Nogalitos St. towards this bridge.

Anybody noticed that there are 18 images of the Alamo on each side
for a total of 36. (1836).....Interesting !
