Hey! Nice angle on those old pumps. I see you noticed that clock, too. It's a cool corner for sure.

This is such a classic American shot. I can't believe I have never seen this corner -- or never noticed it.

If they still have old-fashioned prices I'll be there in a minute.

This is just down the block from PCC.

They seem to be kept up. Maybe they're used on movie shoots. Are they close to PCC?

Clare Scott said...

Thanks Ben - I feel honoured to have two of my requests on your blog.

The pumps are on the corner of Green and Chester, just a couple of blocks west of PCC (or is that giving away a secret?).

I've got to see these in person. They are just great.
