Glad I could take you on a pleasant trip down Memory Lane. Also. TIL that oil companies use to have SandP shakers. I thought your handle meant Sand P.

I remember the tank farm being there on the opposite side of the trail from the WPRO radio station. Lots of good memories for me from the time I lived in Barrington.

Good point Randy. I cropped too much of the image. The connection outlined in blue screws into the top of the "T" where the round handle is located that turns on/off fuel flow to the swing arm spigot. The pipe exiting the top of the connection in question is the gasoline discharge pipe that ends at hose. It could be a check valve. If the swing arm valve at the "T" is opened so that gasoline flows out the swing arm to the spigot, what keeps gasoline from also flowing up the discharge pipe; path of least resistance? I hope this explanation makes sense.

First off let me say that I am by no means a sign expert. But, I have one of these signs that I have had for eons and am sure is real. I know there were some variations, mine says "Ask For" at the top instead of "We Sell". Mine is approximately 16 3/4 x 22 and has a date code and date at the bottom in small print on both sides (mine says 5024 A-M 11-51). I notice this sign doesn't have that. Mine also has four holes punched around the perimeter instead of the two at the top. All this just for your information, not saying it proves a thing. Good luck....GB

Petroliana Value Questions

Don't know anything about value but these signs were discussed on Old Gas before and I think it was determined that the signs were on generators back in the day.

Good to hear from you Travis but not this way! Will definitely keep an eye out for this sign.Sounds like someone knew those signs were in there if they were inside his rv garage. This is what always makes me nervous when we all share so much information but what are we supposed to do? I refuse to live like a hermit and not enjoy my collection and sharing it with friends. Hope these signs turn up and the crooks get their just desserts....Gary

"I also recall the first Mobil station I ever saw with the futuristic round pumps was located on the Wampanoug Trail between Barrington and East Providence."

That Mobil station is still there; along with a Dunkin' Donuts. If you would like to tie this into the wholesaling side, Socony Road is near there and it leads you from the Wampanoag Trail to a tank farm.

My question is, what is it? It would go a long way in making recommendations to replicate it. My guess is, it is a check valve, and if it is, I'd first look commercially to see if I could find one or one similar and start from there.

Still making progress and I want to thank everyone with this project that has contributed. I noted that along with the bug screen in the lite shade a plate is attached.. I surmise that this is a lite reflector for the face numerals and the pricer wheels. Does anyone have one apart for a pattern or have one that I might buy or copy perhaps to a polished aluminum sheet? Also there looks to be a larger plate on one side of the pricer wheels. I tracing of that would help too. Heck I don`t have a wayne 40 computer yet so still a long haul before I need lite....hee hee Thanks

Good Morning Everyone,

Got most of the grass mowed earlier this morning. Not bad then, but mid-90s and matching humidity is back on for today. Some thunderstorms predicted tomorrow and the next day, so I wanted to get mowing done before that.

Here's a photo I took at the Custard Stand in Sesser, Illinois last week. Lady Liberty working part time there.

Have a great Tuesday out there in Oldgasland

Here is a better image of the pipe connection I would like to replicate on my Red Sentry. Can anyone tell me if there are modern parts that I could purchase to make up this type of connection. I can't determine how many parts there are.

I got a few replies on this sign a couple years ago, but the seller & I couldn’t come to common ground on a price, he has contacted me with a fair price recently. Just wanted to get some opinions, good or bad before I pull the trigger!! I know they repop this one, or one similar. Sooo is it real? What year? And what do ya think a fair market value would be? There is no pole, or base, just the ring.Thanks chris
