September 06, 2013 The first automobile - a canvas-top Ford - appeared in Charleston in 1906. Gas pumps started popping up around Charleston soon after. The first service station appeared in 1911 at the corner of Meeting and Mount Pleasant streets. All of these photos came from The Post and Courier's "Our Charleston" book series.
