Visiting Dad at Work

Imagine my excitement when my Uncle Jack pulled out some old-timey photo albums during a visit back in 2007. I'd never seen this picture of grandma Myrtle and Jack standing near the glass-topped gasoline pumps at Player's Service Station.

Those old service station pumps literally showed what the customer was buying as he could see it once the gas had been literally pumped up into the glass portion of the pump, before gravity would feed the fuel down the line and into a car's gas tank.
