About the Author :

Michael Karl Witzel is an award-winning author and photographer. As America's premier chronicler of car culture and roadside phenomena, his work has been published in Invention & Technology, Rider, Motorhome, Volkswagen World, and Route 66 magazine. His "Roadside America" column appears monthly in Mobilia magazine.

Review :

From the curbside gas pumps of the 1920s, to the full-service, uniformed attendants of the 1930s-50s, to today's self-service stations, Witzel thoroughly educates the reader about the history of a little considered, but important need for the motoring public. The text is well written and traces the gas station's history chronologically, while the illustrations provide the reader with a poignant reminder of a time when many things in life were much simpler. -- Vette Magazine - Book of the Month, September 1997
