In the USA, back in the 1950s, there were no self service gas stations. A man came to your car, pumped your gas, cleaned your windshield, checked your oil and collected your money. Stopping at a Guatemalan gas station was like traveling back in time.

    Talk about customer service. You should send them a copy of this to hang on their wall. A terrific shot. My grandmother always stopped at full service gas stations. They are getting harder and harder to find.

    I remember those days. Sometimes the guy would have to crawl from under the car he was working on just to pump your gas. Nice picture Charles.
