Which station has longest continuous time series of aerosol related observations?

Sometime I wonder are there any questions left which Google can not answer? Today I stumble upon one such question, when I was just curious to know which station is oldest running station for aerosol related observations? I know in Barrow,Alaska and South Pole, CMDL is monitoring AOD since 1977. But don't know whether these are the oldest stations. And what about black carbon, surface size distribution, PM10, scattering coefficient. I guess one can expect to get long-time series for PM10 at least.

Let us compile the list. Leave the name of station and time period in comment, you know for aerosol related obs. are being made from the station.
