    Back when I was pumping gas we never put our cigarette out for anything..... just sayin. Yes I quit altogether over 50 years ago, otherwise that and the asbestos dust would have done me in long ago.

    If you are not familiar with her, her story is pretty interesting and she captured some great images of life on the streets from the early 50's until the 70's. I don't think it would be fair to litter this site with her work and not all of it really fits but if you enjoy pictures like this, look her up.

    Wasn't sure of the definition so I looked it up:

    flivver


    [fliv-er]
    noun
    1.
    Older Slang. an automobile, especially one that is small, inexpensive, and old.

    It has been my experience that he is always that way. I'm with you, you made a nice post correcting a detail and it did not require that sort of response.

    @31Dodger - I think @C. John Stutzer was a little bit joking. Don't take everything too serious.

    My thoughts exactly. But that would make her over 80 now.

    edit: Just found that image on the photographer's site. It is her, taken in 1978. Looking closer, the gas pump is not 50s era.
