Great picture Jay,

I find it interesting to see 4 gas "Pumps". I assume 2 cars on each side could be serviced at the same time.

The picture has excellent detail.

Of the 4 pumps you can see 3 different prices. The high price stuff is $0.22 per gallon. Wow!!

Sure wish I had just ONE of those pumps! No one should be allowed four at one time...not even a gas station!!! LOL

I think it is the same photo too.
If you look at the oil bottles in the first picture at the end of the pump isle and then look it them in the second picture at the end of the pump isle the two end oil bottles are empty and are in the same position. The only difference I noticed is that the water can has been moved to the other side of the pump. Someone must have been thirsty.

I wonder where it was? I notice it has Willard batteries for sale. I had an uncle who worked for Willard in Los Angeles during the 1930's and 1940's. Later he worked at Portland Oregon for Exide. I wonder if Exide bought Willard? We don't hear the name Willard anymore.

Sure looks like it was someone's house at one time.

Do I see 3 different brands of fuel on offer? Our stations had multiple brands from different bowsers, and different prices. The last such station in South Australia as far as I know was either at Meningie or Murray bridge. Castrol oil seems to have been sold at all of them.
