Unusual '60s 7-Eleven

Post by StoreLiker2006 » 14 Jan 2012 22:20

This photo has me wondering: what other pre-1967 7-Elevens had looked like this one?

Here is the proof:
corner of Summer Avenue and White Station Road, Memphis, TN, c. 1970 by ⓑⓘⓡⓒⓗ from memphis, on Flickr
(You must look at the far left)

Looking at the far left, the 7-Eleven's storefront is rather unusual in that its sign appears to look rather isotropic(?). If there were two that I remember (from the spring of 1988), the Lake Oswego (5th & "A") and the 50th & Powell (the latter no longer a 7-Eleven c. 1990) locations both had this isotropic storefront, but with the 1968-style 7-Eleven logos (in neon) instead of the originals. Both of these locations opened c. 1965.
