Fill er Up: The Glory Days of Wisconsin Gas Stations - Book

Fill er Up: The Glory Days of Wisconsin Gas Stations by Jim Draeger and Mark Speltz is the companion volume to the Wisconsin Public Television documentary of the same name, Fill 'er Up visits sixty Wisconsin gas stations that are still standing today and chronicles the history of these humble yet ubiquitous buildings. The book tells the larger story of the gas station's place in automobile culture and its evolution in tandem with American history, as well as the stories of the individuals influenced by the gas stations in their lives.

Fill 'er Up provides a glimpse into the glory days of gas stations, when full service and free oil changes were the rule and the local station was a gathering place for neighbors. More importantly, Fill 'er Up links the past and the present, showing why gas stations should be preserved and envisioning what place these historic structures can have in the 21st century and beyond. Includes 220 pages, 250 illustrations, 8 x 10" in. Hardcover.
