I was surfing the web, and found this link to a few old pics form 1938, of a gas station called "Humble's"

That's a good find. It's actually Brown's Humble. Humble and Enco were forerunners to Exxon Brand. Nice photos!!
Click on the paper clip next to gone but not forgotten thread in forums thread list. Good photos there!

Exxon was located in Humble, Texas at one time--I remember Southwest Conference Football, brought to you by Humble Oil and Refining Company. The name was changed to Exxon back in the 1970's.

Here is a wiki history of Humble, Texas: Humble, Texas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Brown's Humble Station, San Antonio Texas, 1938.
Actually, the last known Humble Oil Station still stands on South Flores near South Alamo:

Actually right off I-35 and Alamo. Maybe, South Laredo and Alamo. The old Finck Cigar company used to be across the street until improvements came along.
