Picked up this copy off of ebay... Very early Filling Station, location unknown:



(isn't the horse shoe above the door, suppose to be turned up... so the "luck doesn't run out"? ....

here is a guess; maybe the owner had been a livery Stable owner/farrier; before the "Horseless Carriage" put him out of business and therefore... his luck as he saw it... had run out??? .... always a back story behind old photos!)

fun thread!

my great grandfather's filling station next to their house in Thomas, WV. still own the buildings, all the signs and the window glass is gone. Sadly the filling station is crumbling and will be demoed next month. frown

Don't know for sure, but I'm guessing these are late 1930s.
