Watch: A 1940s history of the Atlantic Petroleum Company

Remember the Atlantic Petroleum Company? Neither do we, to be honest, but its red and white stations were a common sight, especially on the east coast of the United States, through the 1960s. A merger with Richfield Oil in 1966 created the Atlantic Richfield Company - which became better known as ARCO. Through more mergers, Atlantic eventually became part of Sunoco. This late-1940s film provides an interesting look at the early days of a regional landmark.
