What kind of gas pump is that. Haven't seen one like that before.
Be verwe verwe quiet, I'm hunting wabbits.
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.
Life's a GAS!
Ethyl, you shameless hussey!
Always liked a girl that would drink from the spigot.
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.
Ken in Texas
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.
Gilbert made me look.
Are you sure its not Nancy Peloise when she was Miss Lube?
Not Nancy Piojosa. Gil will get that one.
