Restored 1929 Gulf Station

It's easy to find this throwback service station. Definitely worth the couple of minutes detour off the highway. The restoration is complete with four period gas pumps. They also have a driveway hose with accompanying bell signal. FYI- there is no neon lighting anywhere on or around the station.
