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.

Cut through the big town of Barnsdall the other day. Anyone here know Jack? if it's as cool on the inside as the out, It would be great to poke around in.
