I am really starting to love the older cloth gas and oil banners. I haven't bought one yet as they have been pretty hard to find so far. I posted another forum to locate some, but I would love to see some pics of the banners and pennants you guys have.
Looking for a Strata quart and quarts with Aircraft graphics!
I've got many Gas & Oil,and auto related canvas & paper banners to share.Mainly Chevrolet & Sunoco themed. Problem is half of them are larger then most walls. Here's one I bought from a Chevrolet dealership as a kid. 1970 Chevrolet Sports Dept.canvas promoting the new Camaro & Corvette models.
I bought mine at an auction in NH the other year. Also bought a Texaco Marine Products sign that day. Got talking to the former owner and ended up at his house after leaving the auction and bought a gas pump, an air meter and a few other things. We took the siding off his shed and puled the pump out the side wall. It was easier then moving the piles in the way.
Here are a few of my favorites... The Hartford Tire is printed on linen, very thin.. It's my favorite piece in my collection. The pliers poster is also printed on linen, it has wooden strips at the top and bottom to hang in the window of a store. Both safe driving posters are also printed on linen.. Enjoy Keith
