Did you get the dates mixed up?

My cousin, Yvonne Blankenship DeHart said, "I'm almost positive that this photo is of the 1957 flood. I don't believe the Texaco Gas Station was there in 1977, there was a gas there maybe, just not a Texaco. The original photo belongs to Robert McCoy of Matewan, WV, he let them use this photo for a booklet they did for Matewan about 10 yrs ago."

I never been to Matewan but I am sure it was the 1977 flood as that same flood impacted us in McDowell County. That was the official Texaco logo from 1966-83, when the current Texaco logo was introduced. This flood may have killed that business
