Doug,
This looks to be the globe on the near pump.
And the background pump globe, which says Liberty, is dated the same.
Globe CD says 1928-1930.
You know these fellows?

Thanks Steve No just found it on ebay. I'm collecting Dixie now, it's from my home town. I was hoping this photo was taken in the 20s ? I can't find a lot of info on Dixie yet. The pumps look very old. Very hard getting back into collecting when all I did was Texaco for almost 20 years. Thanks for adding the photos. ; )

The pumps are Dayton 200s. They were hand-operated blind pumps. Dayton started to make them in 1923, so the picture is after that date.
