Gas Pumps Historical Information
Fry Visible Gas Pump:
Guaranteed Liquid Measure Visible Pump used throughout the early 1920s, was often referred to as the Fry Visible Gas Pump. The most popular models of the Fry Visible Pump, named after the company founder, were the Fry Model 117 and Fry Model 17. These vintage gas pumps, with their hourglass shape, were nicknamed after the curvaceous actress of that era "Mae West". The "visible" gas pumps allowed customers to view the color and quality of the gasoline through the transparent glass fuel tank.
