Gilbert & Barker 176 / 177 / 179

Gilbert & Barker’s contribution to the industry began with their innovations in kerosene pumps, which were essential before the widespread adoption of gasoline. As the automotive industry burgeoned in the early 20th century, the company shifted its focus to gasoline pumps, introducing models like the 176, 177, and 179 series. These pumps were among the earliest to provide more accurate and efficient means of dispensing fuel, a significant leap from the rudimentary methods previously used.
