This afternoon Hubby Tony and I strapped our bikes to the carrier and drove to Forest Park for a pre-dinner ride. The park has a nice paved trail around the perimeter. a third of the way around I stopped to take a photo of the World's Largest Amoco sign.
According to Road Trip America, the sign is 40 feet high and 60 feet wide.
Since the 1930s there has been a gas station with a massive sign on that spot. As the name of the
station changed (from Standard Red Crown, to Standard Oil, to Amoco) so
did the sign. However, when British Petroleum bought Amoco 20 years ago and changed the station brand they left the
by now iconic sign.
