Long Description:
At this 'Ghost Service Station' on the historic Bells Line of Road are two fuel pumps, possibly from the 1940's. They each have a glass reservoir to the side of the bowser, with an impellor, to reassure the customer that they were getting what was being pumped. There was no emblem of what brand of pump these were, nor even what brand petrol was being sold.

While they have been upgraded to measure in litres (which would have occured in 1970), they don't have any ability to charge more than 99 cents/litre. Mind you, when last used they were charging 43.3 cents/litre for Diesel, whereas that is currently (2019) $1.43/litre.
