Posted By: Dave's Garage Esso pole and sign. - Tue Apr 11 2017 02:44 AM
Got these items last week. The Esso pole is 20 feet tall and the sign is 93 inches by 62 inches. I`m missing the cast covers for the mounting bolts that secure the base to the concrete. If anyone has any please contact me, or if I can burrow one to have some cast I would very much appreciate it.

I also bought two 10 foot tall cast iron lamp posts (400 lbs each). Previous owner had them displayed beside two visibles. I planned on putting them on either side of my driveway with a gas globe mounted on each one. The posts are over a hundred years old and were removed from the Vancouver water front in the early 1970`s.

The next day I came across two 7 ft tall lamp posts. These were imported from Paris, France and are also very old. The wife wants these in the driveway. I get to keep the tall ones for my shop.

Dave I got repop bolt covers for the esso bases from Miles Little at Hershey. His copies are cast, and the best I have seen.
