A few old gas stations that I came across while traveling in west Texas. The first pic shows a sign that I suspect is a Cities Service; collectors of that brand please correct me if I am wrong. The last pic is for you Coke guys.....more to come.

A friend of mine knows I like pumps and globes, and sends me a picture whenever she finds one.
Last wekk she took this shot in Tideswell, Derbyshire, England.
