I have already posted bird photos from our lunch at Wheelers Pancake House and Sugar Camp last week. Wheelers is quite an impressive family operation. Aside from the restaurant and boiler in the main building, there is a Maple Syrup museum, a blacksmith shop, various implements distributed here and there, a display of farm antiques, a new chainsaw museum, and Henry’s Garage. It is the garage that we turn our attention to today.
Here it is with a vintage car inside (I didn’t think to check the make) and an old fashioned gas pump outside.
A closer shot seems appropriate.
As we move closer still, my eyes were drawn more to the license plates and shelf than the car. Whenever I return, I must make amends and focus more on the car itself.
Here is the same photo converted to black and white.
We now draw the lens back again to focus on the White Rose sign and pump. White Rose was a Canadian gas and oil company back in the day. In the sixties, my mother actually used a White Rose service station for both her gas and repairs although. Did sixties pumps, especially early sixties, look like this? I can’t recall. Perhaps these are more of a fifties look.
White Rose disappeared as a service station entity sometime in the sixties after being bought out by Shell. Therefore, it seems appropriate to add a black and white version of the photo.
