This black-and-white photograph was taken in 1949 at a time when wartime petrol rationing was still in force. It shows petrol bowsers on the dirt apron of a garage at the Fiveways in Woolloongabba, Brisbane. A customer in hat and coat pays with what are probably petrol ration coupons. The mechanic, dressed in grubby overalls, is pumping petrol from a Plume bowser topped by a glass fuel reservoir into what appears to be a late 1930s Ford Sloper Coupe automobile. A tram signal box and commercial buildings can be seen in the background.
