Gas Station - 1948

Note the only new and shiny thing in this photo is the license plate. Boy those pumps have seen better days. No paved driveways here, all dirt. 
Here is a color view of a Saskatchewan gas station from an early era. This gives one some modeling inspiration for the 1940's. Note nothing is new looking even the truck looks like it is ready for the grave. I have heard modelers say that sometime weathering is taken too far. This view really confirms maybe for the late 1940's in rural areas we don't take it far enough...George Dutka
