Wayne Pumps World War II Connection-- Part 1

The ad had a giant picture of a red Model 70-C pump showing 5 and 7/10 gallons sold for $1.00 at 17 and 1/2 cents per gallon.

WAYNE PUMP: The Watchdog of your Gasoline Dollar.  The Wayne Pump Company, Fort Wayne, Indiana.  World's Largest Manufacturer of Gasoline Pumps...Est. 1891.

There was also a picture of a German shepherd dog and the Wayne "Honest Measure" seal.

But, then, there is the World War II connection.
