My favorite thing about this old gas pump is that the lower set of numbers, which represents the price per gallon, was designed to accomodate only cents – this pump would become outdated as soon as gas toppled the $1 mark, which I’m sure at the time probably seemed absurd. What a sign of the times.
I’ll have a wider shot of this pump to post over the weekend as my 4th of July tribute.
Also, in the next day or two I will be launching my new Polaroid-a-day photoblog, so check back here very soon for the link! I’m very excited to get that one of the ground.
