There's a really cool service station in town (sadly closed) that I might attempt for a diorama. It was a Texaco station with a bay on each side of the central office.

What I'm wondering is whether anyone has photos of the interior of a 1950s station including for example the service counter area (e.g., did it have shelves, etc) and the bays?

Hi George, I have photos of the exterior of the building but the interior has long been empty and I haven't been able to find any photos. I figured most of these stations (i.e., center office, side bays) would be somewhat similar.
