"Renowned photographer Jeffrey Blackman presents a collection of fun, lighthearted photographs of charming old pickup trucks and gas pumps, relics of the not-so-distant past. His images remind us of a time when we lamented the high price of gas--at $2 per gallon. In the course of his travels across the United States, Blackman found himself drawn to the old, nonfunctiong gas pumps that once dispensed leaded gasoline and to the old pickup trucks that used it, some of them lovingly restored and maintained, others left to ruin in fields and backyards. The trucks and gas pumps beautifully depicted here come from far-flung locations--everywhere from a few miles from the artist's New Hampshire home to Maui, Hawai'i. Blackman's drive to document these artifacts of a bygone era moved him to create this clever photographic keepsake that's bound to strike a chord with lovers of Americana"--Inside cover.
