What kind of gas pump is that. Haven't seen one like that before.

Very early (before visible) style pump. If I remember correctly, turning a crank raised a toothed rack, which raised a piston. I think the quantity dispensed was 1 gallon at a time. Remember, gasoline was sold as a cleaning agent (spot remover) long before it became motor fuel, so large quantities weren't really necessary.

While searching for a similar pump I found this photo. It's not the same make and has nothing to do with rabbits but raises some other questions.

Laws !! Either that's mighty suggestive or I have a dirty, dirty mind. (OK - so I do. ) What's written on the edge of the picture ? Looks like "Vera Vonee" was written on the negative.

Good on ya Ken !! Vera Vance was an actress / dancer whose claim to fame was her role in "The Unholy Three", a movie made in 1925 . . . Poster image for the movie shows a resemblance to the gal on the gas pump.

"A C of C industrial Expo publicity, Miss Vera Vance stands upon a gasoline pump with a hose in her mouth, August 1926." from where I stole the photo.
You fella's make great detectives.
I hadn't thought of all the implications when I posted this.
