Additional Fry 5 Gallon Visible Gas Pump Details
The most popular models of the Fry Visible Pump, named after the company founder, were the Fry Model 117 and Fry Model 17. These vintage gas pumps, with their hourglass shape, were nicknamed after the curvaceous actress of that era "Mae West." The visible gas pumps allowed customers to view the color and quality of the gasoline through the transparent glass fuel tank.
Standard Oil Company History:
The Standard Oil Company, established in 1870 in Ohio by John D. Rockefeller, was the largest oil refiner in the world. Supreme Court ruled they were engaging in an oil monopoly and the multinational company closed in 1911. The Seven Sisters were the successors to the Standard Oil companies.
