It would be fun to re-create that Shell station... wonder if any of these are still around? Noticed also there's (apparently) pumps on both sides.

I am guessing... looks like a 24 or 25 license plate on the Ford?

There is a station that looks very similar to that moved and restored in the History Park in San Jose Califunny. Full disclosure, I have not seen it myself since it was moved there about forty years ago (I know, absolutely pathetic!). Dan Erceg and I used to ride our bicycles downtown just to admire it when we were still in high school. The Santa Clara Valley Model T Ford club (famous for their Endurance Run) also hosts an annual event there early in September. The event is called "History in the Park", and held in conjunction with the San Jose Historic Society. I would imagine such a recreation could be done at that time. You can check their website for photos of past events.
