Bomber Service Station, Red Deer 1948
It's amazing how things have changed. There was a time a fella could make a living doing this. Apparently the owner sold out when his health failed in 1954. I dunno about you - but that strikes me as a mighty noble retirement enterprise. Back then Red Deer (or Dead Rear, as I prefer to call it) - would have been in the middle of nowhere. Today Gasoline Alley runs almost the entire length of the town - a couple miles - and the traffic is four lanes, non-stop.
