    A SHRADER'S SON 1940s SERVICE STATION PNEUMATIC AIR SERVICE FILM 47404
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Dec 29, 2016
    Produced by A. Shrader's Son, part of the Scovill Manufacturing Company, this industrial film promotes the use of free air services for automobile service stations, to increase customer loyalty and sales of tires, valve caps, and other equipment. The company, which held the patent on the automobile tire valve, also produced affiliated equipment including air valves, pumps, and automatic pneumatic equipment. Shrader's "certified air service" as presented in the film, was a huge cash cow for the company and its affiliates.

    Founded in 1844 by German immigrant August Schrader, the company’s humble roots began in a small machine shop in Manhattan, New York. Eventually A. Schrader’s Son had a huge factory at 791 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn. The growing popularity and improved technology of the bicycle had led to pneumatic tires on bikes. A. Schrader’s Son developed and patented the first pneumatic tire valve, the same valve that is used on every bicycle and automobile tire today. It’s still called a Schrader valve.

    The start of the film shows part of Los Angeles including Black's Indian Store (:37) located on East Adams Street.

    I remember when gas was 29 cents a gallon, you got the air checked and the windshield cleaned. Plus sometimes you got Green Stamps or a Disney glass.

    At Christmas dinner, I was talking air hoses to my 30 year old son.
    When I mentioned the distinctive bell that would ring when you ran over the gas pump air hoses that were laid out to run over, he had absolutely no idea what I was talking about.

    Dang, I can hear that bell in my mind as clear as the last time I heard it. I went to YouTube and
    searched movie scenes with gas stations. Finally about the tenth one I looked at I hit a ding!

    At the 29 second mark. She gives it hell too. back and forth

    Roamin Rich Gives a Tour Of Trogs Old Time Full Service Gas Station. On Route 66
    Roamin' Rich



    Published on Dec 7, 2013
    Dick Trog has been Pumping gas for locals and travelers alike since 1951 on the original alignment of Route 66 through Kirkwood Missouri. His post has been at 3 gas stations in total, but has been at the helm of his latest pump island since 1963. Located in an old Phillips 66 station at 10456 Manchester Road. Dick Trog offers full service fueling, state safety inspections, and the occasional lube service.

    I've told many travelers that Trog's Service is the real deal. If you want to warp back in time to get a first hand look and feel of a nostalgic service station, You have to stop at Trog's Service. His station has all the old tools of the trade, old hydraulic auto lifts, classic soda coolers, and plenty of automobile trinkets.

    Stop in and give Dick a visit. He is one of the friendliest people you will meet on Route 66 in Eastern Missouri.

    Maybe we should talk Scorp into renaming the forum "Gold is Money Rest and Retirement Home". :D

    I opened my first Shell Service Station in 1969 in Rockville CT, on Route 30. I was all of 26 years old back then. Hand crank pumps to rewind back to $0.00, $0.24 a gallon for regular, $0.28 for Hi Test. Short skirts were just coming into fashion back then and every morning this gal would come in for a $1.00 worth and her windshield would sparkle when she left.

    Thanks for the memory's.
