Found this other picture on the net. Must be the same car.These are probably the service guys: one to pump gas ️ second to check your tires, third to clean your windshield and the last to check the oil... probably all working together at the same time. The snowman has not melt yet!

Agree -- those Shell stations used to be ubiquitous around here when I was a kid in the '60s...

You worked at a full service too eh, what brand. I worked at a Texaco. And I swear , a gorgeous blonde 30 something winked at me one day, was afraid to even smile back. I thought about her for days.

and looks like I still am 😆

 Yep, a large independent one.  They were all full service in the '50s.  I started in 1953.   A 16 year old country boy watching the world go by.

    A 14 or 15 yer old from Henryetta , TX.  And, yes I still think of ner from time to time.

 

 Fellow learned a lot, if he watched and listened.  Such as , from the assistant manager, honesty is always best. As well as his version of  "the journey is more joy than the destination" . As that applied to the girls.
