Description

Essential One Visible Gas Pump

Gas & Oil has played a big part in the building of the second industrial revolution in America and fuels its existence to this day. In the early 1900s, America began to need more power than the steam engine could provide. power to fuel the machines, cars, boats, tractors, trucks and heavy equipment that allowed for this industrial revolution to become reality. It also helped in a big way to boost our economy, creating many new American jobs. It was the beginning of what makes all of our lives what they are today.

In Alaskas younger years, when it was still just a territory of the United States, gasoline was used mainly to fuel delivery trucks from the docks and the canning companies. their goods could reach the nearby surrounding towns and still be fresh or could be transported by boat or train. It also helped to fuel the fishing trade, including the soon to be booming, Dutch Harbor. As the canneries became more automated with the innovations of the Industrial Revolution, it became much quicker to ship goods to and from Alaska. with the changes made in steam powered ships. You would find gas pumps at and near the docks as well as near the train stations to assure prompt deliveries. This very first gas pump serves as the tangible historical icon for the entire American industrial revolution since it was the beacon that touched the people.
