'Everything New is Old Again'

[image from static.flickr.com too old to be available]

The owner of this place, www.retrolube.com, was incredibly nice, it was an incredibly cold morning, and he came outside, showed me around the place, and gave me a cup of coffee, despite not being a customer. He has an amazing collection of old memorabilia in his store, including a canceled check written by Andy Griffith, and one of the actual shirts Bob Denver wore on Gilligan's Island. Neat place.

Some slim pickings tonight, not many gass stations in my archives.

If you look closely, there is the coolest gas station that you will ever see, floating in the middle of the harbour. It serves both boats and float planes.

Clicks, but doesn't pop
