My favorite thing about this old gas pump is that the lower set of numbers, which represents the price per gallon, was designed to accomodate only cents – this pump would become outdated as soon as gas toppled the $1 mark, which I’m sure at the time probably seemed absurd. What a sign of the times.

I’ll have a wider shot of this pump to post over the weekend as my 4th of July tribute.

Also, in the next day or two I will be launching my new Polaroid-a-day photoblog, so check back here very soon for the link! I’m very excited to get that one of the ground.


  • Great shot, great detail!

  • Great shot – a sign of the times I suppose!
    I am _very_ excited about you Polaroid project. I have just in the past couple of weeks caught the polaroid bug and am utterly fascinated by them. I will be avidly watching for updates!

  • Very nice. Great tones in this shot.

  • How crazy and…naive? At $3.15/gallon here in L.A., it’s seems almost surreal. Nice capture, though. The rust tones are wonderful. Good luck with the Polaroid site!

  • Cool image ! Like very much the graphic effect (with the repetition of numbers …) and the texture made by the erosion.

  • Interesting capture. Perhaps a sign of my age, but I recall “gas wars” and have bought gas for LESS than 10 cents per gallon in my life. I could fill a 16 gallon tank for less than $2.

  • Nice rusty tones. It cracks me up that the machine has the brand name ‘Wayne’, I wonder if the newer models were called ‘Wayne 3000s’.

  • Lovely detail, rust is nicely captured. Looking forward to the new blog!

  • I was going to say, what is that highest number there, a 14? I remember old pumps like this. Those were the days when they pumped your gas for you AND cleaned the windows, checked the tires and oil. And I’m not THAT old. Things really have changed a lot, not just price wise. Really nice shot.

    I am SO anxious to see your polaroid photoblog.
