i need to remove Gas Stove to do flooring

But can't seem to find where to shut the gas.

This is an old house, own by my grandmother. I know it hasnt been updated in who knows how long, before my time i suspect. I don't know how old the stove is or who put it in in the first place. The flooring is as old i suspect. This is the reason i want to replace it and get the floor. (one of many project i wanna do in the kitchen.

Anyway I looked at the back of it but i see no switch or anything that would look like one.

Since it's a gas stove, there should be a gas line hooked to it. I've found the shut off to those old ones at the bottom of the gas pipe, behind the stove, just above the floor, in most instances. I have, on the rare occasion, found the shut off under the house, but it's usually along the perimeter somewhere, behind an access door, where it is easily reached. Worst case scenario, follow the gas line from the stove to where it comes into the house. If you don't find a shut off, turn it off at the meter.
