TITLE   Shell Service Station
DESCRIPTION   Exterior view of the Shell Service Station located across from the ABC Grocery Store in Corpus Christi, Texas. A gas station attendant stands next to a line of four Shell gas pumps and a display case containing products for automobiles. This period was a transitional one as electrically operated pumps began to take the place of manually operated ones. Note the dials on the gas pumps, which register to 20 gallons. An automobile is parked behind the pumps next to the service station office.
