West Claims Most Beautiful Filling Station in the Entire World (Feb, 1930)

West Claims Most Beautiful Filling Station in the Entire World

Dispensers of gasoline and oil at filling stations have come a long way from the day when a gasoline pump at the wayside or curb was considered sufficient to meet the demands of the public. Most filling stations are now artistically designed but it remains for Los Angeles to claim the most beautiful filling station in the world. This station of spotless tile and stone is as immaculate as a bath room. The attendants are garbed in pure white and all of the fittings are kept in excellent condition. The station is located on Wilshire boulevard.

    jojobeanmachine » They’re wearing white gas station attendant uniforms. You’re reading waaaay too much into it.
    He’s obviously wearing pants, I had no idea that was unique to “arab sheiks”. You must be a fan of Glenn Beck.

    Oh, we’re the men of Texaco
    We work from Maine to Mexico
    There’s nothing like this Texaco of ours!

    We wipe your pipe
    We pump your gas
    We jack your back
    We scrub your glass

    So join the ranks of those who know
    And fill your tanks with Texaco!
