I sure miss Charlie Shaver! He could glance  at a photo of a gasoline pump from the 1910s through the 1930s and give you the make, model, probably year and history of the company!

Great photo.

I love the signage, building details, as well as the pump!

Thanks, Bob, for the larger view! The colorized post card is also wonderful! Wish I could answer your questions about the gasoline pump. They are something I have always been interested in. But there are just so many things in this universe that fascinate me. I just can't learn them all.

Thank you Ron. These pumps were in front of Branchville Shell, if you care to ID them. I had one of the globes for years, finally sold it back to the son of the fellow that bought the station around 1946.

The one on the left I believe is a Symington Wayne pump

I posted the photos on the Old Gas site.

Here is the latest reply. Might be worth checking out before it's miss identified.

 

 

I disagree, my guess is Rapidayton #25. Look at the stack in the picture how it tapers to a point. The Dayton #50 has a stack that does not. I've owned both and no matter which model you have, as Jim stated, they are back breakers! Thanks
