Hey Guys, thanks for posting those pictures of the cans, they are way cool. Ted, is yours a metal quart can? Keith, I have seen a Chevrolet version as well. Thanks again for posting.
Ken.

Morning Ken, the can is 2 or maybe 3 quarts looks like a Heinz tomato juice can without the grooves and alot bigger. Mr. BA- Alex has the can and is looking it up in his archives. In my opinion its older than the vulcan cans, because of the refiners name on it. Very unusual lid that screws in with cork on the bottom.

Ted, that is an unusual size, and I agree that is pre-vulcan, keep us posted on what Alex finds out.
Robert, yes, please post a pic of that can if you can, I've never seen a cardboard blue/orange can myself.

Hey everyone. I am just about to head out to a show and shine at one of the A&W's and I thought I would keep this thread alive a little longer and post some pics of the pumps I used to have, other than the Bennett 1056 I still currently have from my previous pictures, oh yeah, and the Wayne 100 I did for some friends in Grande Prairie,Alberta. Again I apologize for the poor pictures as they are pictures of pictures I printed of on plain paper.
Ken.

Simply an amazing collection you have Ken! I recently joined Old Gas and have loved going through this thread with all your amazing photos. My Dad worked for BA as an auditor from '56-'69 and then on with Gulf after the takeover. I recently finished up the restoration of my 1962 GMC truck as a British American Oil service station shop truck as a tribute to my Dad & BA. My slowly growing BA collection is nowhere near or ever will be of the caliber of you collection but I'm quite proud of my tribute truck! Hope you don't mind if I post a pic or two here which were taken in front of a restored circa 1955 BA station near me in Newtonville Ont.
Happy Thanksgiving to all Canadian Members!
Paul

Hi Paul, and welcome to Oldgas, sorry I missed your introduction. Thanks for your compliments, I have seen pics of your truck when I go on to google images, very, very cool, that would be a great addition to any B/A collection. Check out "Buys of the week" Aug. 11 to 17, there was an auction locally here and I bought a whack of cool items and posted them on here. I will have to update my pics again soon. Keep in touch Paul,
Ken.

Where is that station Murphy? Nice truck you have done there also. We were up north a couple of weeks ago and saw this old B/A station just north of Barrie on #11.

That one is still in nice shape! There are still a few original buildings still standing around here although most of them have been resided, etc so the don't resemble the original look. There is still one on the hiway west of Saskatoon about 35 miles in similar shape to the one above.

The station which my truck is photographed in front of is in Newtonville Ontario on old HWY 2. It's East of Toronto close to Port Hope. Great place to visit & the owners Frank & Betty are the nicest people to meet.

I have seen that BA station on HWY 11 many times on the way up to the Cottage, it's run as a towing service now. I have a few other pics of old BA stations in Ontario which are still standing. Will post pics soon.

Here is a then & now pick of a BA station still in use today just off the QEW near Grimsby Ont. Also a now photo of an old BA still being used as a garage in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont. I pass this one fairly regularly also when I head down to Niagara to visit my parents.
