Marcey Oil Company tank terminal

The seven large tanks of the Marcey Oil Company are an incongruous sight in the otherwise residential Mayflower Heights-Beach Point area, but the presence of the company in this part of town goes back at least to 1939, when the Marcey Oil and Ice Company applied for a permit to store heating oil in two 5,000-gallon tanks. Edward “Marcey” Salvador (1914-1994), who had worked for the DeRiggs Ice Company at 194 Bradford Street, established his own ice and oil business in 1937. More history┬╗
