Filling Station Has Giant Mirror (Oct, 1934)
Filling Station Has Giant Mirror
WHAT is said to be the largest outdoor mirror in America has been set up by a Pasadena, California, service station with the thought of flattering the vanity of auto owners, both male and female.
While gasoline is being shot into the tank the motorist faces a life size reflection of himself and his car in a 7 by 12 foot mirror mounted on the side of the station. As he makes the turn to drive out a full size side view of the car is obtained. A plate glass window was silvered to make the mirror.
Dr. H. D. Chatterton, Pasadena eye specialist who designed and erected this station, asserts a big mirror draws more customers than any other attraction.
