Is this Sinclair restroom sign real? 150616034209 I see it ended but the adhesive pads threw me. Wonder when double sided "pads" came into existence? Thanks John

I actually bought it (and I thought it also was a great deal) but like I said the sticky pads through me. I buy most of my items with buy it now (when they are listed cheap) because I can never go toe to toe with the deeper pocketed people. Wife gets a little (and actually I mean a very little) annoyed when we are home and every 15 - 30 minuted I check newly listed items. But its the only way I can get anything. LOL LOL Thanks again for the confirmation that it was a good purchase. John

early 30s is when pressure-sensitive adhesives really started getting used in a variety of form factors. Scotch Tape came about in 1934 or so.
