In your sales sample photo:
Is that what the tanks would have looked like underground, and that you could indeed have two different types of gas when the pumps were really close on an island in the way early days? Or were the early tanks those concrete floaters (popped out of the ground because they were empty) that someone posted a while back
Someone had mentioned back in December, that it would also not be unusual in rural stations for the same gas to be sold as two different products. The example was premium being labeled as 'permium' and 'regular.' I understand that the distributers would not have allowed regular, however the be sold as 'premium.'
So which is correct, or could the tanks have been either metal or concrete? Or did the concrete 'boxes' hold one or more metal tanks?
If that is a tank, it's smaller than I expected. I guess folks didn't use their cars back then as much as we do now.
Thanks for any info! : )
