Refinery Entrance Over The Years

I have several images of the entrance to Imperial's refinery. I chose 5 pictures to show the changes over the years. I'm reasonably certain Bob Laperouse took 3 of the 5. I'm not sure of the source for the 1933 or 1947 snap shots.

He wasn't exactly certain of the date, but T. C. Rozelle says in an issue of The Crown that Imperial built its main office by the refinery entrance around 1900. In '52 the office moved across Highway 90-A to the 'new' shopping center, where company headquarters are still located.

I've put captions on the photos to help identify the scenes.
