The Star Service Gas Station was the childhood home of Clyde Barrow of the infamous Bonnie and Clyde. His father, Henry built this gas station from money collected after his mule and wagon were run over by a car. This part of Oak Cliff was locally known as the Devil's Backdoor due to the high percentage of transient thugs for hire living in this often flooded neighborhood. Did Clyde feel any emotional connection with this family home and all those other gas stations that his Barrow Gang held up?
