Looking Back: Johnson's Texaco Garage And Gas Station

It's the World War II era and you are one of the lucky ones who aren't serving overseas.  

Although gasoline is rationed all across America, it's your day for a fill up.  

What do you do? 

One option is Roy Johnson's Texaco Service Station, which operated about seven decades ago in Dorchester.

Sharon Tesar Johnson‎ shared this photo with us on our Facebook page.  Sharon noted that the station was "a longtime business in Dorchester."  

She added that Roy Johnson and his brother Bill ran this family business.

"It was located in the west part of town, close to the railroad tracks," Tesar Johnson writes.
