The pumps have a BP on them, Could it be the start of British Petroleum?

the engine by the door is a "Lister", made in the U.K.

I'm fairly sure it is British Petroleum. Those are pre-visible curb pumps from the pre-WWI era. It is probably in Great Britain or a British Commonwealth nation.

I think the sign reads "Petrol, Oil & Gas Engines". Dave

Dale, I'm not certain that the stationary engine is a Lister.
The fact its on those massive skids, has a fuel tank mounted on the top of a huge cooling tank, make me think its a 5hp Wolseley. On closer inspection I think I can see holes in the flywheels rather than spokes....another Wolseley mark....on some models.
Here's a picture of my 1924 2.5HP Type R portable sheering plant. You might see the similarities....except for the overhead shearing gear on my portable version. The crankcase shape is definitely Wolseley, however, the head looks different and I expect that its not an R type.
But I could be wrong and very often am.
Either way its definitely a British service Station.
Cheers,
Rob
