Vintage Gas Tax Act Paper Service Station: Jack & Al's Standard Service - Pt 1

Now here's an interesting service station from - I'm guessing - the war years, perhaps 1943-45-ish. I don't know much about these or who actually printed them but apparently they came in a variety of oil company names. This station is lettered for Standard Oil and I've seen them lettered for Texaco. It measures 7 1/4" (18.41cm) L x5 1/4" (13.33cm) D x 3 3/4" (9.52cm) H overall.

A big shout-out and many thanx to Tom DePasquale moderator over at the "Vintage Gas/Service Station Playsets/Garages & Dioramas. Tin, Masonite etc." facebook group for giving me this station to add to the collection!!

Next post, we'll show what my build ended up looking like.Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina
