"Esso Restored"...

An impressive, 1928 restored Esso Station that once had the hustle and bustle of gas station attendants. Who knew after almost 90 years of technological improvements that we'd do away with full-service and have to get out of the car and pump our own gas? Regardless of where technology may lead us, simplicity still reigns king to our hearts.

You surely don't see many of these anymore.
This is wonderful, Kelly, and it must have been so satisfying to be able to photograph it.
