Today's picture shows a great scene for America's past . . . some old guys sitting around a service station playing checkers. What a common site this used to be, but just about completely gone now. I can not remember the last time I saw a scene like this.

Today's picture is from 1939, and it shows a service station in Butte, Montana. Interesting that gas was eighteen cents a gallon. I can remember in the 1960's gas being in the 20 something cents a gallon. It was a pretty big shock in the 70's when gas actually hit a dollar a gallon. I can remember that the gas pumps and the signs had not been configured properly for gas to ever reach that level.

Today's picture is from 1940, and shows a Texaco service station. Interesting to see the billboards and read all the ads.
Those of you who guessed yesterday's picture was Billy Carter's gas station were correct. The mini-contest today is this . . . Can you remember the advertising jingle for Texaco in the 1960's and 1970's?
