There's a person between the pumps on the right and the '34 Ford. There's a person inside the station entrance door, and there's a person at the wheel of the car facing the camera.

This reminds me of a snow sleding accident when I was 8 in 1960. I went down the hill, hit the ramp and lost control, i fell off but the sled hit dead center into the hubcap of a brand new Impala. Cost my Dad $18.00 to replace it. I done odd jobs to pay it back, I was alot more careful after that.
The car looks like an Oldsmobile 1946-47. I can't recognize neither the fish nor the men.
1935 Dodge Brothers front fenders....
I grew up in North Tonawanda in the '70s and I remember the whales. Man I used to beg and plead with my Mom to go through the one in Tonawanda and once we finally did - it was great as a little kid. As I got older and in my teens I remember thinking less of those structures when they sat idle. Now, how I wish I could see those cool whales and palm trees and sea horses on the lamp posts again and take my son through the car wash on a sunny day. Funny how life works...
Back with some more yearbook stuff - first up, a batch from Bullard High School, Fresno, CA.
Here's a surprise from 1959:
Did the guy who owned the Ala Kart live in Fresno, or have family there? Kind of odd to see it in a gas station ad.
