Fill ‘er Up With Nostalgia

I ran across this old service station in Leetonia, Ohio, that is not easy to describe. Its various artifacts harken back to an era that has long since passed into history.

These include the old car, the signs in the windows and the gas pump.

Yet there are modern touches, most notably the siding on the building, the modern vehicle parked at the far left and even the tank on the far right.

I’m not really sure what purpose this facility serves. It might be someone’s business, yet if so I didn’t see a sign. Maybe it is just part of someone’s collection.

Whatever the case, the place is dripping with history and nostalgia and provides quite a contrast with the modern service station several hundred yards away on the other side of the railroad tracks behind this building.
