Remember when leaning against a gas pump for a photograph was a novel idea? "Here I am at the refueling station!"
Yeah, me neither.
In rural 1920s Alabama this might have been a cute little idea. There's another photograph of the station from across the street as well, so we're left to assume the photographer had some tie to the store and that's why we have this view of the No-Nox fuel pump today.
This is a Gulf station, and the street sign is the classic "That Good Gulf Gasoline." See the link below for a color example of that logo.
No idea what that poster on the right is advertising but I'm guessing it is another sign for Gulf fuel.
It looks like the guy is wearing a uniform, but this is a unique photograph in this collection. We're left to wonder where all those boots went.
