Ha. Those are the same guys from the earlier posted pic. Perhaps the same time as the pic that I posted. I wonder if they were from corporate...

This weathervane was made by a Calif. collector 20 years ago. Supposed to me made to spec, except he had the Eagle powder coated. All milled brass. Quite pretty. I have seen a original, with black painted Eagle. I had my son make a base so I could display it.

I believe that this design is from later stations. You can clearly see the airplane on the earlier stations.

If you guys are on Facebook I've been posting pics of the station there in the group "Richfield Beacons".

Layne Chrishenson screened these for some of us years ago when he was restoring signs, as I had done in the eighties, I gave him a original plain black eagle and got what you see in the photo back. I never put mine up on the roof, this is a good way to display one in doors....Tom

Does anyone have any dates for these pictures?

Bowser made at least three pump models, each of which they called the "Xacto Sentry." Which model do you think they are?

The history of gas pumps is that they always got shorter, because the car kept getting lower, if there are dials in those round holes it appears they would be very hard to read from the front seat of a car. Was there possibly a dial somewhere lower?

I believe they're all from 1929 or 30.
