    Mecredi being Wednesday en fracais je crois. Close enough.
    This is my big prize from the Rose bowl although not the biggest in size. Apparently I was the winner of the Rose Bowl as several people stopped and asked me about it and the price I paid was equal to theft. My bad.
    This is a rather large set as it is about 27" x 15". This is one of the largest of the tin litho buildings. The only one to rival it would be the 3 story barn. Plus it is a good looking set. In addition it allows one to recreate the excitement of a gas station. This is before they had hot dogs and fountain drinks and laundry detergent and so on.
    The set is almost complete. It is missing one sign and I should replace the painted attendants and tire display.
    As usual I will milk this for a few more posts as there are a lot more pieces and parts.

      I can feel the guilt from here Fort. Maybe next year you could go back to the dealer and give him some more dollars. Maybe not.
      Enjoy your bargain, it is so cool. With the box!

      Thank you very much racer4four. I may give him a few more dollars if he sells me something else.
