This undated photo shows the former Gravenhurst gas station on the corner of Winewood and Muskoka Road in Gravenhurst.
The spot where the gas station was located was first sold from a private property owner to the British American Oil Company in 1937. It subsequently became a gas station run by C. Lloyd Wright, who then sold it to George Yewer in 1968.
In 1973 Yewer started a Ford car dealership, which stretched from Muskoka Road to First Street. The original building was torn down in 2014.
