Hello everyone! This is my first post, i stumbled on the site while googling around looking for information on a possible vintage BP item I have. After contacting the site, Jim Potts directed me to the forum, so here I am!

Here's my story, this belonged to my grandfather, when he passed away, I made sure to keep it. I never did get a story out of him as to where he got it, or what exactly it was meant for. My mother only knew the character as Mr. Beep and that it was from a BP gas station. BP... Beep... get it? Made sense to me smile I was hoping someone could tell me more about it. It's about 22 inches wide, and 15 inches high, its double-sided, and appears to made of masonite.

Thank you!
Scott

Best guess, it hung inside the office/conveniences store like the Chevron/Standard stores have here of the cars.
