Years of Production: circa 1920's

Manufacturer: The Wayne Pump Company

The Wayne Pump Company has been known by different names over the years.  Variations included Wayne Oil Tank & Pump Company, Wayne Oil Tank Company, Wayne Tank & Pump Company, and the Wayne Company.  

In 1907 Wayne began production of gasoline pumps.  During the 1930’s, Wayne invented the computing mechanism that became the manufacturing guideline for gasoline pumps.

 

The "visible" gas pumps allowed customers to view the color and quality of the gasoline through the transparent glass fuel tank. 

The “Shell” name originated in London and came about from a previous import/export business involving oriental shells in the 1830’s.  The Royal Dutch Shell Group was created in February 1907 when the Royal Dutch Petroleum Company and the British "Shell" Transport and Trading Company Ltd. merged their operations.
