Here's a really old station.

Note the stack of tires on the pole.

I can't read the globes - but you can get Alcohol for 55-cents a GALLON!

LOL

On one of the banners in this post I used a front on shot of this station in Los Alamos, California. These are some farm fresh photos that I just go today from a another family member of the original owner.

Nothing like new photos of an old gas station!

They're still pumping gas at this same location but it has changed a lot since these photos were taken.

Todays' Photo . . .

A great Chevy Dealership and Gas Station.
I love the 3-D Art Deco lettering on the building.

It appears that they are selling Mobil Gas.

Here's a nice photo for a Saturday.

A Hi-Speed Gas station. A very nice brick station with some very kewl ornamentation.

And since we have been discussing file size on another string . . .

This image was hosted thru ImageShack.
I created the file in PhotoShop as a 8" wide by 6.4" high image @ 72 resolution. That is 574 x 471 pixels.

I then 'Saved for the Web' (as a .jpg file) at 100% quality and ended up with a file of 113.3K.

Later . . .

Jim
