Hello everyone!

The pump of the month for October 2019 is a festive one lol. It's the Bowser 300 or nicknamed the "Pumpkin Head" Bowser. How fitting for the month of October! These were made from 1927-1932, super cool and interesting pumps.

I know this is a hard pump to find, but I think it is very fitting for the month of October. Please share pictures, old photos, or the pumps you have in your collection! Thanks everyone.

Here is a photo that I use as my screensaver at work. It is Prairie Cities service station #1 in Winnipeg, mid 1930s. Cheers, Don.

That Clipper pump came from the stone gas station on Rainier Ave in Seattle. Real close to the Renton Airport. In the book "The American Gas Station" it shows the station on pages 30 and 31. On page 31 that pump is shown between two visibles. Years ago I saw the pump and talked to the man who got it from the owners of the station. He was living in Oregon at the time. Nice to see it again.
