Shell Oil Station
Remember gas stations like this?
We passed this one on a country road in Southern Ohio and had to stop and take pictures.
I took this series as My Honey and I walked back up the road...
...to get all the details into our cameras.
The station is freshly painted and it appears there is merchandise in the windows. The gas tanks appear to be working, but who knows? We didn't see anyone, but expected someone to walk out any minute and ask if we needed help. Perhaps this place was repainted for a movie?
Even the pick up truck parked at the side was in character with the building.
Directly across the street was what appeared to be a permanent garage sale. A lady sitting in a chair over there watched us as we so carefully photographed the Shell Station.
I thought of this long afterward, but is it possible that the people over there at the "garage sale" also own this Shell Station? If they keep it all painted and looking really sharp, you have to know people like us will stop to take pictures and just might come across the street and buy something. I should have walked across the street and asked.
