Those Places is a daily prompt at Geneabloggers that invites family historians to post photos and stories about places their ancestors lived.
This is the final installment of a series based on my great-aunt Velma Davis Woodring’s scrapbook that she kept during her freshman year at Harrisonburg Teachers College (now James Madison University).
This gas station on Route 11 between Harrisonburg and Staunton, Virginia advertises itself as Your Last Chance.
Velma captioned it: Scene near HTC 1925. Gas was about 20-23 cents a gallon. That equates to about $2.63-$3.02 per gallon today. Not too much different from today's rate.
