Here are a couple of the better pumps I bought at Iowa Gas, I ended up buying 9 pumps at the show.
The Erie clockface was missing one of the super rare molded window glass and a face plate. Would you believe I found the glass at the show, it was laying on a table at the far end of the parking lot, I bought it and ran back and bought the pump along with the W60.

I picked up 4 frames and some face plates. 1 is a twin/double pump. I will be going back and buying a pair of doors, a top, some misc parts, 23 computers and 2 computers that went on the back of trucks that delivered gas. One has a printer. The guy went to a bulk plant years ago and picked it all up. Im getting it all for a steal.

Thanks
Noah

Doug, I think it was for the vulcanizing and reconditioning of used/damaged tires. Pretty neat how it worked with steam. I'll post some pictures of inside the book later this week.

Love these old Texaco cans with the black text. I need to find the one that doesn't say "NEW".
