Happy New Year everyone. Just wanted to find out what this thing in at an old gas station by my house is. When a group of us go cycling we usually stop here, drink some water and stretch and sit on the steps. We have all noticed this thing but no one knows what it is. So the first pic is of the grocery store which also used to be a gas station many years ago. The other 3 pics are of what most of the group think is a water pump. I think it is the remains of some type of lube or gas pump.
Here's the store:

My thought is it is the remains of a commercial kerosene pump.Several of the elements are there;early measureing devices adn dispensing valve.Jack an /or DB can give you a more definitive answer!!

Kerosene is most likely it's original use.

I'd bet it's a BOWSER. Pump cyl. is in tank under floor or in basement.

I would have to agree. That would be cool to get the whole setup. Then the next thing is to have the room to display it. That would look sweet smile
