A Sinclair Station?

Who remembers Sinclair? The gas station with the friendly dinosaur on the sign? These stations were gone before my time, or at least they didn't exist in Florida. We had a tiger in our tank, or maybe a Shell, but mostly the big orange Union 76. This ad is from the back of Music From Schubert Alley (Custom High Fidelity LP DSS-2250, 1960), a various artists promotional LP that is the soundtrack from a 1959 TV special on NBC. It's hosted by Andy Williams (his first, but not last, hour-long TV special), and features Alfred Drake, Lisa Kirk, Ray Walston, Doretta Morrow, Betty Comden & Adolph Green, all singing show tunes.
