    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.

    Texaco Gasoline Supercharged with Petrox: "Exclusively Yours" 1954 The Texas Company
    Jeff Quitney

    "Texaco sales film aimed at Texaco dealers, introducing a new high octane gasoline with the additive "Petrox." Excellent cutaway engine illustrates pistons in use; also good animation of same. Shows advertising in support of product roll-out."

    Reupload of a previously uploaded film with improved video & sound.

    Originally a public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied.
    The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petrox
    Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/b...

    Petrox was a detergent additive used from 1954 to 1989 by Texaco, in its premium-grade "Sky Chief" gasoline. A new plant in Port Arthur, Texas was built to manufacture Petrox. Petrox continued to be used in Texaco's highest-octane gasoline for more than 30 years even after its leaded "Sky Chief" grade was replaced in 1981 by "Super Lead-free Sky Chief", which was renamed "Texaco Super Unleaded" in 1982.

    Due to Petrox lowering the octane of the fuel, it was replaced by "System 3" in 1989, which in turn was succeeded by "Clean System 3" fuels in 1994...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texaco

    Texaco ("The Texas Company") is the name of an American oil retail brand. Its flagship product is its fuel "Texaco with Techron". It also owns the Havoline motor oil brand.

    Texaco was an independent company until its refining operations merged into Chevron Corporation in 2001, at which time most of its station franchises were divested to the Shell Oil Company. It began as the Texas Fuel Company, founded in 1901 in Beaumont, Texas, by Joseph S. Cullinan, Thomas J. Donoghue, Walter Benona Sharp, and Arnold Schlaet upon the discovery of oil at Spindletop. For many years, Texaco was the only company selling gasoline under the same brand name in all 50 US states, as well as Canada, making it the most truly national brand among its competitors. Its current logo features a white star in a red circle (a reference to the lone star of Texas), leading to the long-running advertising jingles "You can trust your car to the man who wears the star" and "Star of the American Road."...

    Texaco gasoline comes with Techron, an additive developed by Chevron, as of 2005, replacing the previous CleanSystem3...

    Texaco was founded in Beaumont, Texas as the Texas Fuel Company in 1901. In 1905, it established an operation in Antwerp, Belgium, under the name Continental Petroleum Company, which it acquired control of in 1913. The next year, Texaco moved to new offices in Houston on the corner of San Jacinto and Rusk. In 1928, Texaco became the first U.S. oil company to sell its gasoline nationwide under one single brand name in all 48 states...

    Later, in 1931, Texaco purchased Indian Oil Company, based in Illinois. This expanded Texaco's refining and marketing base in the Midwest and also gave Texaco the rights to Indian's Havoline motor oil, which became a Texaco product. The next year, Texaco introduced Fire Chief gasoline nationwide, a motor fuel that meets the octane requirements for fire engines. It was promoted through a radio program over NBC hosted by Ed Wynn, called the Texaco Fire Chief. During this time, Texaco also supplied the Nationalist rebels in Spain with a total 3,500,000 barrels (560,000 m3) barrels of oil.

    In 1936, marketing operations east of Suez (including Asia, East Africa, and Australasia) were placed into a joint venture with Standard Oil Company of California -- Socal (Chevron) under the brand name Caltex, in exchange for Socal placing its Bahrain refinery and Arabian oilfields into the venture. The next year, Texaco commissioned industrial designer Walter Dorwin Teague to develop a modern service station design. In 1938, Texaco introduced Sky Chief gasoline, a premium grade fuel developed from the ground up as a high-octane gasoline rather than just an ethylized regular product...

    In 1940, the CEO, Torkild Rieber, was forced to resign when his connections with German Nazism, and his supply of oil to the Fascist forces during the Spanish Civil War were made public...

    In 1954, the company added the detergent additive Petrox to its "Sky Chief" gasoline, which was also souped up with higher octane to meet the antiknock needs of new cars with high-compression engines. The next year, Texaco became the sole sponsor of The Huntley-Brinkley Report on NBC-TV. In 1959, the Texas Company changed its corporate name to Texaco, Inc...
