This was also made for a trade magazine, but the original just had the pump, lamp and roadside. I added the building after seeing a Walker Evans photo exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum in New York. Evans had a photograph of a structure similar to this one and he was a collector of signs like the ones I added. When I was a kid I hitchhiked many miles on Route 66 one summer.
