ABOUT THIS PHOTOGRAPH
This was a much more time-consuming photograph to finish, but I’m glad I did because there’s a tonne of great details to take in: the 1937 Plymouth P4 Sedan in the Santa Fe Trailways livery, Barnsdall Motor Fuel in the gas pumps (a G&B 176 and Wayne 615 pump respectively) and of course, the garish tobacco advertising from Camel, Prince Albert, George Washington and Granger, the last of which I managed to find from a genuine colour photograph from the same series by Russell Lee. The Coca-Cola sign to the right of the postmaster is actually a thermometer. – Jordan J. Lloyd
