CONTEXTUAL INFORMATION

Administrative / Biographical history

As motor vehicles became more popular in Australia, Vacuum expanded its operations. In 1924 Vacuum opened its first bulk petroleum products terminal at Pulpit Point in Sydney and took delivery of its first imported bulk oil products cargo, a 1.5 million gallon shipment carried from the United States by the tanker "HT Harper". A decade later, Vacuum introduced "Ethyl", Australia's first Super grade motor spirit.
