Long Description:
A short history of the Gas Station
Gasoline for automobiles, in the early 1900s, was purchased at general stores and repair shops. the gas pump was invented in 1905 and soon after gasoline was available at curbside. In 1910, gas stations were being built that resembled small houses. Shell and Standard Oil advertised their product with logos on the side of the building developing a 'brand name'/ In 1914, Standard Oil designed and standardized the gas station adding on canopies in the 1920s to protect attendants and customers from inclement weather. In the 1930s, bays for repairs were added to the simple structures and the gas station basically stayed the same for decades.
