Roadside Memories: A Collection of Vintage Gas Station Photographs (Schiffer Book for Collectors & Historians)

$38.00
  • Barcode: 9780764302787

Take a drive down memory lane with this rare collection of gasoline station photographs from both public and private collections, touring a much simpler time in American history. Since its inception in the early 1900s, the service station has been an icon of the American roadside and a catalyst for our childhood memories. Included is a brief history of the development of the gasoline station in the United States and details about many of the companies which punctuated the roadsides with their buildings, including the Standard companies, Cities, Mobil, Phillips, Gulf, Shell, Texaco, and Conoco. Filled with over 500 black and white photos, Roadside Memories captures the essence of American life over the first seventy years of this century. Captions provide station location and era identification. These nostalgic photos aid both the collector and historian interested in filling up on high-grade service station pumps, classic advertising, architecture, and classic automobiles of the 1920s-70s.
