Vintage Cardboard Gas Station

The 1940s village set we've been featuring the last few days included this really nifty little gas station. I like the details on this because it's like looking at a time capsule. On one side of the building is an air pump and a sign proclaiming "FREE AIR" (apparently the pump itself is inside the small structure). On the other side is an oil spigot. Would the oil tank be inside the structure or buried below ground, hmmmm? Cans of oil are displayed outside the front of the store, a common practice for decades - but no longer! This diminutive building measures only 2 5/8" (6.7cm) W x 1 7/8" (4.8cm) D x 1 7/8" (4.8cm) H. Enjoy!
