A service technician would pop your hood, check your oil, wash your windows, and make sure that you had enough gas to get from point A to point B. Those were the days…

On top of the immaculate service, service stations were once places that were designed to look modern and spiffy, a far cry from today’s hum drum gas stations that are a dime a dozen. Take us back…

It's difficult to fathom that the man who would go on to revolutionize the world of technology was once just an ordinary kid with a passion for bike riding. Bill Gates grew up in a privileged household, with access to the best education money could buy. It was during his teenage years that his prodigious talent for programming began to emerge, with Gates creating scheduling programs and software for his private school even before he turned thirteen.

After enrolling at Harvard University, Gates' entrepreneurial spirit led him to drop out and launch his own company, laying the foundation for a future that would change the course of human history. Through his groundbreaking innovations and tireless dedication to advancing the possibilities of technology, Gates has left an indelible mark on the world, inspiring generations of aspiring tech entrepreneurs to follow in his footsteps. This image of a young Bill Gates on his bicycle serves as a reminder of the incredible potential of a single individual to shape the course of the world around them.
