Gulfspray Insect Killer
Gulfspray Insecticide Sprayer and Can
Here at Retroplanet.com we are surrounded by all things retro. Not only the things we sell but original items and collections that decorate our offices. We thought it might be interesting each week to bring you a photo and information of an interesting, and maybe unusual, retro item we have kicking around. Please note these items are not for sale.
Pictured here are a vintage can of Gulfspray insecticide and an insecticide sprayer, both made by the Gulf Oil Company. Based on the logo design, they are both most likely from the late 1950s, early 1960s and originally contained an insecticide that has since been determined to be harmful to humans or the environment, or both. They’re an interesting remnant from our past.
