Title Miniature diorama featuring metal toy cars and a pretend gas station constructed of scraps of wood--1920s
Description A miniature outdoor diorama featuring metal toy cars on a tiny road made in the dirt. Small, hand-lettered sign is mounted on the side of a scrap of lumber that is propped up horizontally by a short piece of wood and some rocks - probably representing a carport garage and gas station for the toy cars to fuel up. The sign reads: "Sayre Gas & Oil Co". In the background a rock sits on a wood platform laid across small posts or sticks. There is a sadiron pictured right, possibly for scale.
