Here's a nice Marx Service Station from the 1930s. I really love the look of vintage toys, especially the lithographed ones. The artwork is 'of the era' and a modern toy made to replicate an older one just wouldn't have the same feel. Marx made these stations with one and two pumps and this one has cut-outs in the base stamping to allow for the placement of two. It measures 5 3/8" (13.7cm) W x 5 7/8" (14.9cm) D x 3 1/4" (8.3cm) H. Shown here as well are some cars posed with the station for comparison. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina
Look at thos items in the background. The ones labeled 'L', 'M', and 'H' look like drums. Could they represent oil drums in 'Low', 'Medium', and 'High' viscosity??? Then there's the boxes with an 'X' on them. They appear to be batteries.
Here's a Banner plastic tanker truck delivering a load of gas.
