Once were Petrol Pumps...


...Now just oddities to be found in the Village Museum.

Perhaps one day all petrol pumps will end up like this when the fossil fuels run out. To be found in the Little Crosby museum to the north of Liverpool.

good catch here. I have to admit I haven't seen any like like these in a few years now. I see you have a fair bit of snow as well!
Les Auld: A mere memory away these days Dawn, thanks for the comment.
Oh..I remember them well !!..Good one Les.
Les Auld: So do I Ron, especially out in the country. Thanks for the comment.
I like running across these old style pumps in museums Les, I always take a picture for old times sake.
Les Auld: You just have to take a picture Brian, thanks for the comment.
I like this in B/W it really suits it!
Les Auld: It does Linda, thanks for the comment.
Nice capture Les, you think they would look after items like this a bit better though
Les Auld: Lack of money Brian, and a small privately run village museum. Thanks for the comment.
So much interest here Les. The fabulous wooden door, the chains to the left of it, the strange implements in between the pumps - all really interesting. Thanks for sharing
Les Auld: Plenty of detail for the eye to wander over Pamela, thanks for the comment.
You can see how once it may have been very busy here...but now obsolete! Wonderful capture!
Les Auld: And now hidden away as well, thanks for the comment Bernard.
