ABOUT THIS PHOTOGRAPH

Taken June 1940, Pie Town, New Mexico, United States 
(Library of Congress)

"This was a much more time-consuming photograph to finish, but I’m glad I did because there’s a tonne of great details to take in: the 1937 Plymouth P4 Sedan in the Santa Fe Trailways livery, Barnsdall Motor Fuel in the gas pumps (a G&B 176 and Wayne 615 pump respectively) and of course, the garish tobacco advertising from Camel, Prince Albert, George Washington and Granger, the last of which I managed to find from a genuine colour photograph from the same series by Russell Lee. The Coca-Cola sign to the right of the postmaster is actually a thermometer."

– Jordan J. Lloyd

Original Caption

"The stage which daily brings in mail, freight, express and passengers to Pie Town, New Mexico."
