This is a picture of an old gas station taken in the 1940's. The station belonged to my grandfather, and you can see him standing out front by the gas pump. He would wash your windshield, check your oil, and check your tire pressure as he filled your car with gas. I have to admit that I am often nostalgic for the old days where Mom and Pop businesses took pride in their premium customer service. Something has been lost when those working in stores are minimum wage college students, who really do not care at all about the customer or the job.
