Gas Station Matchbook



Here's an old matchbook with no other identifying information. This was probably a generic image used for many businesses. I like this image's depiction of (what appears to be) an old gravity-fed gas dispenser and for its "formal" vibe, a reminder of an era in which motor travel was a pleasure enjoyed mainly by the wealthy.

With gas prices the way they are, it seems only the wealthy will be driving in the near future.
