  1. What is so amazing to me is to see the Christmas wreath on the ladies room door….its like turning back the clock.

    1. You know, I thought the same thing?
      I took pics (that I didn’t post) of the wreaths on both the men’s and women’s restroom doors πŸ˜† I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree πŸ˜‰

  2. Good pictures! I’ve stood in traffic trying to get a good shot of the place and it can be a challenge.

    And, I swear that red floor jack sits in front of the place 24/7 πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks πŸ™‚
      Luckily, there wasn’t really anyone around at all. I found it hard to get pics because there is so much peripheral “junk” around or in the way.

    1. Oh, Arc – That’s great!
      Why, I wanted to kick my own ass at least 3 times this week! Good find, toots. Will you be hitting that on your way to Nashville? πŸ™‚

  3. What a great station Fuzz. With so many independent petrol stations closing in the UK because of the supermarkets, I hope the locals look after this one.
    It’s a pity that the pumps aren’t the originals, or are they?
