I've actually been trying to get decent pictures of everything! I have a working shop/display area and its a bit of a mess right now, as I'm trying to get a few pumps cleaned up before winter. I do have most of the pictures taken now, but I have a couple items left and then I have to put them on the computer and sort thru them. I will have it for you, but its taking me longer than I thought it would!

Yes , Kevin you need to get busy and get us our pictures . I keep thinking you must have a secret vault in your shop basement full of cities treasures you will reveal at the end . Kind of like a grand finale .


I like SINCLAIR and old American made stuff ... No china items.

OK--I'm finally ready! Man, what a job doing all the photos and then categorizing them! I'm sure I have a few hours into the process!
First let ne say that my collection isn't as big a deal as some make it out to be and I hope the photos don't disappoint anyone.
I've been at this for about 8 years and its been the most enjoyable time of my entire life! The knowledge I've gained and the friends I've made are a tremendous addition to my life.
I have tried to accumulate as nice of pieces as were available to me and I'll keep right on going until my health tells me to quit, so here's what I've gathered to date.
Please don't throw comments in until I have finished, as I'm sure this will take a while to post all of these pictures(over 100). You will know when I'm done because I will announce the last picture!
Enjoy the pictures, and a big "THANK YOU" to all that have helped me along the way! There are a lot of you!

First--Why Cities Service? When I first started collecting, the first pump that I ever found was a Cities Service pump, and there had been a Cities Service station here in Devils Lake at one time.
I knew I needed to pick a brand, so that was the reason. Here is that first pump, a Wayne 60, and all the rest of the Cities branded pumps that I have.

The Tokheim 36B is a porcelain pump, as is the Erie 753, and the Smith. The two Bennetts were just picked up and were the original pumps used in Bisbee, North Dakota.
