In 1956 I was in the Army at Ft. Leonard Wood. I had met a nurse who's family lived about 25 miles south of the Fort. This was in the heart of the Ozarks. To reach her parents home you had to drive down two dirt roads. At the junction of these roads was a general store with a visible gas pump outside. Once I pulled up there for gas. The old man came out and started pulling back and forth on the long handle. Naturally this pump was hand operated because it was purchased before they got electric. He put ten gallons in my tank. Gas was probably $.25 per gallon at that time. That same year was when the area got phone service. Years later I walked all around the property looking for the pump but never found it.
Incidentally I got married to her in the chapel at the Fort.
