White Rose gasoline

On display at the Wheeler Pancake House and Sugar Camp in McDonalds Corners, Ontario.

A Gilbarco product.  This one has a "Calco-Meter"!  And from a time when gas was being sold for 42-1/2 cents per gallon!

"White Rose" was the trademark for Canadian Oil Companies Limited.  This company was bought by Shell in 1962, adding 2900 retail outlets to their chain.  Click here for a brief history of the company.
