Ames Harris Neville (Standard Oil) “Desert Radiator Bag”

Very old example, Ames Harris Neville (Standard Oil) “Desert Radiator Bag”

The Desert Brand canvas water bag was designed so that a small amount slowly seeped through the canvas and evaporated as you drove, cooling the remaining water inside the bag. In order to function properly it was hung on the outside of your car. These were seen on almost every auto that traveled the highways of the arid southwest and served double duty: quench your thirst and to refill your radiator.

The W. A. Plummer Manufacturing Company of San Francisco, an established manufacturer of tents and canvas products, patented the Desert Water Bag on February 9, 1916. The fabric of the bag — half flax, half jute — was woven in Glasgow, Scotland. The bag was made in a variety of sizes and the top of the bag could be opened for cleaning.
In 1923 Ames Harris Neville Co. purchased W. A. Plummer and started producing the iconic water bag under its own name at the Portland, Oregon factory. Ames Harris Neville made water bags exclusively for Standard Oil.
