Fill 'er Up! The Great American Gas Station
[From the back cover]
"The smiling face of the gas station attendant in a spiffy uniform is a classic example of an image one evokes when reminiscing about the gas stations of old. Back before there were such things as pay-at-the-pump and groceries at the gas station, one didn't need to get out of his or her car when filling up the gas tank. Fill 'er Up! The Great American Gas Station covers the history of the filling station from its very first station built in Pittsburgh in 1913 to today, along with the comparison history of the gas station in Europe."
"Catchy slogans, bright color schemes, iconic brand symbols, stamps, and giveaways are all included in this book. The transformation of the gas station from its rudimentary beginnings to the convenience stores of today is displayed alongside 400 images that include vintage film, contemporary color, and many brochures and petroliana paraphernalia."
