Long Description:
This amazing piece of history is still bolted to the ground where it was once used to fill up cars next to this old warehouse. The warehouse itself was one of the many used by the Bekkedal Tobacco Leaf Company in the prime of the tobacco industry in Vernon County. The signs associated with the pump are still readable as it was obvious that this pump was used by a local Co-Op. This was the premium pump with lead added. You can still read the price per gallon at 35 cents.
Gasoline Brand: Co-Op

Reproduction: no

Location: Outside
