Butler Gas Pump

I actually purchased this cute Butler Gas Pump almost a year ago over the phone, but since it was all the way up in Montana had hoped that I would find other stuff to go get at the same time so I waited patiently (or not so patiently) to go get it. Finally last week we jumped in my truck to beat the snow and went to get it and another pump I bought from the same collector. While there I also bought a pretty decent 6' Phillips sign. We arrived just before the snow hit and loaded up and left to get over the mountain to stay the night in Idaho where the storm caught us.

We bought this Carbon Fiber racing model P-51 mustang from the Estate of a war hero that had 3 Purple Hearts , as well as a bronze and silver Stars for bravery.
The P-51 was the finest, fastest and most advanced fighter plane every built and with its 1680 hp Merlin engine, made by Rolls Royce, it was the fastest plane in WWII. It out gunned and out flew any of its rivals and dramatically helped turn the war in the Allies favor.
We were very fortunate to have this plane offered to the Lakeside Storage Museum by the wife of its owner after he died an unexpected death in 2014.
The famous Flying Tiger shark mouth as well as the red tail paint were added by us to remind us of many of our heroes that have kept America and the world free from tyrants. God Bless America!

1910 Gilbert and Barker Visible Pump


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
