2011 Shell Station – Galloway
GALLOWAY SHELL SERVICE STATION – FALLBROOK, CA
The 46th annual Fallbrook Vintage Car Show poster for 2011 features a Main
Avenue Shell Service Station that occupied two different locations and operated
under three different names from 1939 to 1962.
The original station, which is pictured on the poster, was owned by Fallbrook
residents John and Marjorie Galloway and opened in 1939. The station was
located in the area now occupied by Cold Stone Creamery on South Main Avenue.
In the mid 1950’s this station changed owners and became Marty’s Rocket Gas.
The Galloways moved further south on Main Avenue and built another Shell
Service Station in the location currently the Angel Society of Fallbrook. The new
Shell station eventually became a “Terrible Herbst” station that served the
community from 1959 to 1962.
The artist, Jim Krogle, began the poster art with John Galloway standing alone in
his traditional white service station uniform. Krogle later learned that John
Galloway’s daughter, Donna Galloway Oxford, still lives and works in Fallbrook as
a real estate agent. When a photo of her as a child was located, Krogle added her
image next to her father.
