Old photo of the week

We found this great photo of Downtown Texaco at 117 E. Robert Toombs Avenue that was taken many years ago when full service attendants filled the gas tank, cleaned the windshield, checked the oil, tire pressure, and wiper blades. When we examine the right side of the pump we can make out “Fire Chief” at 32.9 cents per gallon. The price for “Sky Chief Supreme” on the left side of the pump is a bit fuzzy. OS8-2714, the phone number on the truck, goes back to a time when the Osborne 8 exchange was used, probably late 50s or early 60s. Do you recognize the two attendants? The inset photo of “Sam,” another photo we found, may be a closeup shot of the gentleman on the left. Call or stop by the office if you can provide any identification on this old print.
