gotta love the points :)

Thanks !!!

This is a fascinating subject, especially considering the re-emergence of the Main Street culture.


So all it say's about dean & co is that they sold "even gasoline", there isn't a brand listed and I can't read one in the picture

The brand in the window displays red star gasoline. You might try clicking on the image and then click again for a bigger sized image. You may also download the image, which is scanned at a very high resolution.

How interesting
