Pumpin’ Gas – 1960s
These days, we all pump gas into our cars ourselves. However, in the 1960s, gas attendants were tasked with the job. The gas attendant from Milwaukee in this photo hopes to perform his duties most efficiently. They not only pumped gas into your tank, but also washed the windows of your car. Some even helped to check the pressure of your tires. That was the complete service back then. In the U.S and some other countries, a few gas stations still have this kind of service in the rural parts but they’re not that prevalent anymore.
