    Manikin
    (57 items)

    I was going through some old family photo's and instantly loved this old gas station showing the Crown globes and a visible gas pump. It is my Great Uncle and photo was taken in 1942 . I don't know what kind of car but I bet someone does :-) Gasoline was 18 cents a gallon !
    As a child he was a favorite since he owned a Ice Cream Parlor and candy store :-)
    Happy New Year to all my Friends on CW
    *****************
    I found another photo of My Great Uncles car I went searching after gargoyle identified car at gas pumps as a 1936 olds . Here is side view but the grill looks different ? Not sure if same car? . It was a separate photo I believe they are same car and it says in front of motel on back so would have been outside Illinois on way to Canada I would guess as they traveled there several times to see family

      Neat photo. Happy New Year Manikan!
    7. PhilDMorris PhilDMorris, 3 years ago
      Happiest New Year wishes to you Mani, may all kinds of good blessings occur for you in 2018, Love to you !~
    8. AnythingObscure AnythingObscure, 3 years ago
      I don't think that's a Ford, but its hood ornament (or should I say *mascot*?) looks an awful lot like a DeSoto one somebody else posted recently...? GREAT OLD PHOTO, anyways! :-)
    9. PhilDMorris PhilDMorris, 3 years ago
      It does not appear to be a desoto ornament and thought about the indian chief ornament and almost looks too like a greyhound ?? Maybe somebody with better eyesight than mine can help. The desoto looks up mainly this appears looking straight forward?
    10. PhilDMorris PhilDMorris, 3 years ago
      I am better with french mascots than american, need new eyes, don't tell me to look on ebay for some :~)
    11. AnythingObscure AnythingObscure, 3 years ago
      And then, there's that (likely pretty fun in its own right) 'streetlight' fixture on a pole-arm in the background...I'm not sure I've ever seen another like it. Mani, could you share *where* this photo was taken?
    12. Caperkid, 3 years ago
      Great photo.Happy New Year Mani.

      Hi bratjdd have missed seeing you . I have no idea what kind of car but I think I saw that Grill on American Pickers and
      AnythingObscure I have seen those types of light fixtures also on American Pickers and he always buys them . He lived in Moline Illinois but did travel , I have only what is wrote on photo it does not say where he was .
      Thank you Caperkid much appreciated and
      Trey I think that one of these pumps would look good in your man cave :-)

      Great photos! That looks like a Jaguar hood ornament to me. But I have no idea. The second one is def a different car tho. My grandparents owned a dry cleaning biz and a candy store too! My grandmother had the old press machine in the garage for years! Great memories! ;)

      This is the 2nd time I have answered you, Mani. The power went out (again) just as I was going for the sent. Yeah, back on the Rock. Still waiting for wifi @ the house. Long waiting list (1 month) since everybody's connection was blown away. Have friends who say they can shorten the wait for me. The eye of Irma went right over SXM. Wind gusts recorded of 240 mph. It sure shows. I can't follow CW yet, but hi for now.
