Once upon a time, gasoline was poured into your Model T by hand. By the 1950s, service stations were manned by teams of attendants that rushed forth at the sound of a bell to wipe your windows and check your oil. In the 1980s, self-service had become the rule at all but a few stations. Now that slice of Americana is available in this new $19.95 paperbound edition of the MBI Publishing Company's bestseller. Nearly 200 photographs showcase period advertisements, original trademarks, memorabilia, and much more. Old-time owners and attendants discuss these changes and how they have affected our lives.
