1910 Gilbert and Barker Visible Pump

Jan 30, 2018Museum Tour0 comments

This is a cute 1910-1915 Gilbert and Barker pre visible gas pump sporting the beautiful Crown globe used by Standard Oil. The globe is original as is the fabric covered hose. The pump belonged to an avid Salt Lake collector who died a few years ago and we bought this pump from his son.
These early pumps had no way of viewing the fuel passing through them and were not used much after the visible pumps became available in the late teens. We feel lucky to have this one in the Lakeside Storage Collection
