Perhaps you collect gas station memorabilia? Or maybe you just remember the old service stations of the past, pulling in near the pumps with that familiar “ding ding” that we hardly ever hear these days. And then your tank was filled, windows washed, and oil checked while you waited in the car.
We found some outstanding photos of old service stations, including some color photos from the 1940s that show them in all their glory. Who could have predicted that one day these service stations would only be a memory?
This gas station, photographed in 1977, was clearly using some very old pumps. Via/ Library of Congress
