world's first gas station Seattle

John McLean of Standard Oil Company of California in 1907. What would he think now?

Some claim the first gas station was built in St. Louis at 412 S. Theresa Ave in 1905. Chevron gives Seattle the nod (and the plaque) at Pier 32, 2264 E Marginal Way S Seattle WA 98134.
