    The old pickup in the front there makes it seem so much better.

    Not sure the year on this one -- maybe a bit earlier (a couple of pumps since removed).

    While it isn't the same town, so many streets in the town I grew up in looked like this. My grandmother lived in an apartment that was in a building just like A.J. Murphy Roofing.

    ⇧ Pic one looks like (a bit fuzzy) our young attendant is wearing @LizzieMaine approved saddles as she pumps gas.

    LizzieMaine Bartender

    Or possibly Deathless Spectators. Either way, she's got the right attitude for the job. (My great-aunt wore dirty denim overalls when she pumped gas to go along with a bilious personality.)

    Jeans, T-shirt and Chuck Taylors was my "uniform" when I pumped gas.

    And I think you nailed it with the "deathless" spectators.
