Vintage gasoline pumps made prior to 1965 on permanent display
Expanded Description:

The first gasoline pumps came into common use around the beginning of the 20th century. This vintage machines still dot the landscape in displays ranging from restaurants and museums to private collections, from single pumps to recreated service stations.

For purposes of inclusion in this category, the arbitray date of ca 1965 is used to define "vintage." Prior to this, most pumps featured a circular top, though some of the narrow rectangular pumps were being used. We will try to be as inclusive as possible, but the focus will be on the older pumps.

All pumps must be on permanent display. The locations may be in a museum, or inside a building such as a restaurant. As long as it is publicly accessible, it may be included.

Pumps identified as petrol, diesel, or other language equivalents are included.

Reproductions of various types of vintage pumps are also acceptable. Please note this in the variable section.

SPECIAL NOTE: While the details outlined in our category description, and the requirements listed in the posting instructions, cover the MINIMUM elements and standards for all waymarks in this category, each waymark will also be evaluated by a volunteer reviewer for overall quality and appropriateness. If a reviewer deems that there are deficiencies in some aspect of the waymark, the waymark may be either declined or accepted with request for changes and/or additions in either content or format.

Each waymark will be evaluated on its own merits. We will endeavor to be reasonable and flexible while maintaining the quality standards for the category.
