Additional Information: 

This button is for Hatoff's Texaco station in Boston, Massachusetts. Morris Hatoff opened the original Hatoff's in 1924. Morris' son, Stan, operated the business after Morris died in 1965. When the land was seized by eminent domain for highway construction in 1974, the station relocated further along Washington Street near Kenton Road. Hatoff's became an independent gas station in the 1990s. The business is known for its logo of a grinning man tipping his hat to travelers, which can be seen in the center of the button.
