Vintage Oasis

Who over 50y.o. doesn't remember drinking at a fountain like this? What warm, or cool, memories it evokes. Still occupying the same space inside of Shipley's full service station in Bowling Green KY, it continues to delight customers on a daily basis. It has become an Oasis of American culture in this station which has served this community for 75 years. Passed from father to son, the memorabilia has remained as important to the history of this station and to the families of Bowling Green
