Just wanted to share these two old family photo's both taken in the late 50's. 1st one is my grandparents candy store next to an Esso station, notice in the background the esso man washing windshield. farther down this road was a sunoco station that I pumped gas at in high school. I can remember trying to steal a piece of candy and a goose that used to chase us around the candy store and you can imagine the Easter Baskets we got! the 2nd photo is my wife's Grandpa at his Esso station and I think that barn was a cider mill. the only thing we have from wifes grandpa is an esso clear plastic bank given to us by her mom. ENJOY by the way, I'm looking for one of those G&B 98 pumps to restore if anyone can help.

    Thanks scandinavian_pieces and junkmanjoe, I dont remember the goose catching me, I was very young, my grandparents lived in a trailer behind the store, they closed it around 1960 and retired to Florida. I only wish they could have been younger and kept the store open longer. I was only 6 or 7 when they went to florida so I only have a few memories of the store.
