Old Shell Oil Gas Pumps at Bodie Ghost Town

Photo of old Shell Oil gas pumps in Bodie Ghost TownThese old Shell Oil gas pumps at Bodie stand out. It's not what you expect in a ghost town that had its heyday in the 1880s, but Bodie obviously limped along into the era of the automobile before the ghosts moved in. Because they are so "modern" they stand out and create a great juxtaposition against all the wood and brick.

Turned on by old gas pumps? Then also see this photo of an old "petrol" pump that I took on a trip to my hometown environs in New Zealand in 2007.
