  • The old frame house in Columbus and the old sycamore tree that shaded it disappeared a long time ago, and a filling station now stands on the north-west corner of Fifth Street and Walnut Alley, its lubricating pit about where Mrs Albright's garden used to be.

    —James Thurber, 1952, 'Daguerreotype of a Lady', in The Thurber Album

    Very few ghits for this. I suppose I know what it is, but not being a car person, I don't know what the usual name for it would be.
