Logo blast from the past

AMPOL was an Australian owned petroleum company, which was, according to Wikipedia, established in 1936 in response to Australians' concerns about perceived inequitable petrol pricing, and allegations of transfer pricing by foreign oil companies to limit their tax liabilities in Australia.

I hadn't seen its logo for years, until I spotted this shade tent at Bexley Swimming Centre.

It merged with Caltex in 1997, but the brand apparently still exists, mainly in country areas.
