i don't know if it's the way they look or the old cars but old stations sure had a lot more class back then. they were enjoyable to go into. nowadays you can't wait to pay and go. i remember a while back there was a nostalgia thing going on with drive in food places ,like Mcdonalds buildings and happy days type eateries, why not gas stations?
Believe it or not back in those days a lot of homes never had a scale in them because people spent their money on more essential "Stuff" as money was tight. Like @Copper Top said a coin put in got your weight and sometimes a cheapo prize.
Where I am currently it's the same story and the ladies eye light up when they see I have a free one in my bedroom and the local 7-11's all have a pay one in front.
Father-in-law sitting on the fender of his "A" in front of the service garage/station where he worked. Fords seemed to be the order of the day.
Another one of Bonfield's in Bethesda Md.

Got to be in Canada LOL
I drove past this old gas station building yesterday in south Minneapolis (for those who are local, it's on the corner of 3rd Avenue and 38th Street.)
Two very different views of the same station:
Cooperative Station at Greenbelt, Maryland, 1938
Israel with a de-choped Merc in the background
Carbs Boiled out.
Old store is next to the river, built on stilts because of flooding. Pumps are below for the boats on the river.
One more from Israel
Israel again (via Amos Koren).
She must have been a fun date back in the day.
^^ she was a real gas
With a real bad case of Gasoline Breath!
Mobiloil became Sonol in Israel due to politics but people kept filling up their tanks
