A 1939 gas receipt, from the Cramer's Tuckerton operation, signed by Jim and Arnold's father, Harold, who was running the business at that time. 208 gallons of gas, at 6.6 cents per gallon, were purchased for a total of $13.73. If Harold were around today, he sure would be getting pump shock filling up his pickup's tank.
A 1946 receipt from Horner Brothers Service Station in Tuckerton for the purchase of two tires and a tube by Harold Cramer. The bill came to $32.68 with a $2.00 credit for an old tire.
