o.k.... the wrap up... white and bagley was sold in 1987/1988 to dryden oil. the manufacturing facility, in worcester,was promply demolished. however... the brand is still alive today. dennison lubricants holds the oilzum name and markets the oil. as far as the logo.. it was adopted in 1905 as the oilzum kid or bucktooth boy, a cartoon childlike face. this logo was only used for three or four years. this led to the logo maturing into "oswald" the chauffer.. not the early race car driver as most people think he is. so... there it is. its been fun doing this and i want to thank everyone who participated.

Are you people kidding???????????

Shawn worked his A$$ off for close to 2 years; to get the COTM going again... AND in the end only a handful of Members helped him....

When I did my COTM on Tide Water and Associated... I actually got PMs... Telling me that no one was interested in the History or the items I was sharing... That the real interest on Oldgas was what were items worth now? Not what the History was behind the items or the Companies...

Instead of waiting on others, why not just start a thread on the Company that you are interested in? But, do some research and give a History along with images of the items you have...

John, that is the problem... Too many on Oldgas... Keep waiting for "the other Guy" to do all the work... Do some research, work a little... Scott, Wayne, Jack, Craig (the poorman's museum) and a few others that are escaping my poor memory; have all written books(in some cases many books) about the Petro Hobby... In ALL CASES, one hell of a lot of research was done by them... They didn't wait, for the other guy to do it for them...

We all know that a number of Members here, have written numerous articles (you included John) on the Petro Hobby... They all have had to do more than a little research, to make those articles as complete and factual as possible...

A number of very knowledgeable Members have left Oldgas... Some because of death, some because of life's challenges, others because they didn't/don't feel that they fit in on Oldgas anymore...

Hundreds of years worth of knowledge, that used to be shared on Oldgas on a daily, weekly, monthly basis is now gone...

There are many Members on Oldgas; both "New" and "Mossback" that have knowledge to share... But, until the Membership actually proves that they are interested in the History of this Hobby, instead of what the "resale value" of items are... More and more of those with knowledge are going to drift away!

if the research & work is the issue... then why not just start a COTM thread that simply acts as a showcase to some of the items people have out there? maybe simplifying it will be the ignition that it needs to get started again?
