As I remember,from many years ago, they were assigned to pump gas,check oil, cooling water, tire pressure, and wipe the windows for customers. The business owner would not be able to compete in the automobile fueling business unless these free services were provided along with the fuel and "Green Stamps" and free trinkets such as water glasses and car wash coupons were also offered to keep customers coming back to the business.

If the photo caption read "Illinois State Historical Society" I"d say that was Al Capone and Bugs Malone standing there.

I spent a portion of my 'formative' years as a 'gas jockey'. When you checked the oil and water and windsheild washer bucket, you also whipped of the air filter (if dirty showed it to the driver) and fan belt(s). We got a small commission (I repeat small) on any stuff sold. In my spare time I did tires, oil changes and cleaned the shop for a whopping $.85 per hour. AHH, them wuz the daze !!
