No that's not Hudson... that's Fred the station manager.
LOL Dennis!!! wish I was that quick witted!
Wow 30wt on tap. Must be soooo fresh
Now if I could just convert one of those into a beer tap.
Those can't be that old. I remember them at Monkey Wards Service in the mid-50s.
That's why Monkey Wards went belly up...still using 1930 equipment in 1950!
I worked in a station and the owner still had that set up for bulk oil in the '70's
Fred and Hudson have been mentioned ... what about tall, slender Ethyl?
Ethyl will just lead you along.
Thomas, Great word play with "lead"
Garnet, That Ethyl pump looks a little more matronly to me! Now the Mae West pumps had some curves! Good to see you on here Garnet.
I used those pumps when working in the service stations in the 60's ...Now have a couple in the garage for garage art....
Phillips was founded in 1926 but entered into the auto fuel business in 1927, so they just caught the tail end of Model T production. Great picture and a search of google provides a lot of history of the company.
My wife's kin folks worked for Phillips after the war and told stories of being caught buying fuel at other brands, there were repercussion for those that did. It appears that Phillips had a petro police.
