Cafeteria GAS STATION (Sep, 1948)


Service is only as good as the driver makes it at some of the new serve-your-self gas stations in California, but the motorist saves four or five cents per gallon of gas. Top, one of few attendants is at grease rack, where metered outlets show amount of grease used. Top right, at central booth girl attendants get the change for motorists’ money. Right, girl awaits payment as driver helps himself. Below, “oil bar” near rear of station sells numerous brands at cut prices. Cars must be driven to the bar for service
