Photograph Identification Project Entry #7

Three Girls at Esso Pump in Yanceyville

Above is an undated photograph (thought to be in the 1940's) of three lovely young ladies standing beside the Esso gas pump at Johnnie Gunn's Caswell Motor Company. In the background is the house then owned by John Yancey Gatewood (home of famous Yanceyville artist Maud Gatewood), which building today houses the Richmond-Miles History Museum and is the headquarters of the Caswell County Historical Association. Note the child's toys in the front yard. Query what a gallon of gasoline cost at this pump.
