That looks so cool!!! It rarely snows where I live and when it does it does not stay very long. This is the only snow picture I have that a gas pump is in it.

I just added a Boyle Dayton curb pump Model 75 to my collection. It looks pretty boring with no signage or price box. Does anyone have some pictures that show some in service with some sort of adverting on them?

This was found in a bottle collection, does anyone know anything about it, what it held. It has graduations on the back and a picture of a paintbrush brushing something on the tire or tube.

Nice pump! I’m not an experienced collector but I have a Gilbarco that I think is a 996 and its ad glass opening is slightly larger than then the meter opening. Yours appears to be the same sized openings...perhaps a 906 I need a panel but I’m confused between a 906 and 996. How were you able to identify your pump as a 996?

Dear Oldgas friends.

Do you know the story of the attractive young woman framed by a Kelly-Springfield tire that smiles at us from the billboards and magazine ads?

What about enjoying the Kelly old ads art by great illustrators such as Louis Mayer, Justin Gruelle, Laurence Fellows, the Master Peter Helck and the Streamliner train designer Otto Kulher, among others?

It is a pleasure to share with you the results of my ten-year research as a scholar especialized in the pioneer tire companies graphic design and advertising strategies (1880s-1930s). I’m a professor of Graphic Design subject at the University of Barcelona, Catalonia, a pasionated academic researcher and writer… and a collector too.

If you want to know more about the Kelly-Springfield Tire Co. and its amazing advertising history, download it in the link:

There you will find an entire article devoted to Kelly written by me, accompanied by dozens of incredible images never published before. Surely it's worth looking at!

I hope you enjoy the fruits of my academic research, gathered in my Thesis dissertation dealing with the American pioneer tire industry: The Forgotten Years of Bibendum. Michelin’s American Period in Milltown: Design, Illustration and Advertising by Pioneer Tire Companies (1900-1930).

There you will find the story of other important tire companies such as Fisk, Gillette, Cupples, Lee, Republic, Hood, India and Miller, among others.

You can find them in the link:

I wish you to be useful.

I'm looking forward to reading your comments and apportations to the topic!

Greetings from Barcelona, Catalonia.

Sincerely, Pau.

That can would hold 5 gallons of petroleum product. It would usually sit on the side or in the back of a tank wagon that held various bulk products. It could just travel in a wagon or a pickup. It might hold a specialty fuel or oil. That can is post 1900. Early cans had no ribs/flutes, next were horizontal ribs. Later cans had the vertical ribs. That tag indicates that it was approved for sales in those states. Inside the top of the neck should be a brass tag that says something like "5 gallons to this point", with an arrow. I would vaguely say from the teens to the 30's for a date. My research indicates that these were not painted at all. I have some that are not painted. They are soda blasted, which gives a super smooth finish compared to sandblasting. In general I believe that is a fair price for that can with the company name. Some would argue higher, some lower. It is, of course, yours to paint or not paint to your liking.

...the can dates from the postwar era...best to use some dish detergent to clean it up, as it's not to harsh...

The reproductions are getting better and over time it will be very difficult to distinguish between original and later produced. There are now "old" reproductions that collectors have had for years.
