Vintage Petrol Pump

Believe it or not, these things are highly collectable, but not in this condition. It’s doubtful the most avid collectors of pre-WW2 (hand-operated?) petrol pumps would bother with this one. It looks like it’s been stoically rooted at the roadside for many decades taking all that life and the harsh Irish weather can throw at it.

One thing’s for sure—on the day it was first installed there wouldn’t have been much passing by on the narrow road that would have needed its fuel. There was a much slower pace of country life back then.
