    Ooops, I just realized that I posted that one before. Getting old and forgetful is tough. Oh well, here is one that I don't think I have. Paris, Texas, sometime in the 1930s

    You can't see it, but there's a pump hidden by the posts at Glenn Smith's grocery store on the left in Center Sandwich, NH. Dad let me fill up our car when I was about 8, maybe 9.

    Wow... never seen that before... curbside gas dispensers. That had to be very dangerous!

    I still have an old Cities Service tanker truck. They changed their name to Citgo.

    The lettering on the truck was painted over in an amateurish way, so I never put it on my layout. One of these days, I should repaint it. After all, it's a relic of the Transition Era.

    Looks like he has good reason to keep those tires aired up. I see a bare rim, where the spare tire should be stowed. :eek:
