It looks like the attendant is passing the hose through the side curtains to someone inside who would be filling the tank under the seat. I would think the smell of gasoline inside the car would be pretty strong.
The window display is interesting.

The guy in the coat looks a lot like Thomas Edison.

I think it's the attendants first day and the boss told him to fill up the car with gas so he is!

There were several pagoda style stations in my home town but they are all gone now. I think they called it progress but I called it destroying history.

Note that in later years this would be marketed as a "Chevron" station, as the owner is an independent owner, not a Standard Company owned station.
Must be pretty cold, the radiator has a cover on it.
