So who do you suppose the Model T Driver is? Corporate rep paying a visit?

Love the pump plates too!! Anyone ever see one?
Or decal? Did they have decals back then?

Also, note the pumps say, 'Chief ?' on them. I thought it interesting that they were using not Fire-Chief or SkyChief this far back of course, but yet Chief something.

"Chief Sentry" was the name of the model of Bowser pump. Had nothing to do with the brand of gasoline.

Photo was taken probably in the very late teens,very early 1920's. I also believe those were decals on the truck and pump.

The absence of lanterns on the Model T suggest it was electric. The first year a starter was an option was 1921.

What's the do hickey on the ground next to the pump ? I should of said decal/sticker I do not know what was used. Not a sign though are my thoughts... Your curved 8" and 15" PPP came in around the mid 20s....
