So, if you go back through the pics at the start of this thread, you will see some additions and changes.

Thanx for sharing Ken and all!
Since Ken said that he wanted to see others B/A, Here is the limited amount I have/had. I do wonder if there was a 6foot round B\A sign in the ring and pole I still have, before the Texaco sign was in there??
I do still have the barrel lubester and am thinking of having it powder coated in the same color and add a couple period correct B/A decals.
All came from the same station somewhere around Nelson BC.

Dave, that very well could be that it had the sign there at one time. That's funny you took a picture of your barrel as I have the same barrel, but I have no where to put it so I cut the top off about an inch or so down, cleaned up the edges a bit and sandblasted it and I'm actually going down to the shop tomorrow to paint it. I'm doing green with the embossed letters in white, and then I can hang it up, yours will look very cool all painted up with a bow-tie decal on it.

I just picked these signs up tonight after making the deal late last week. I had 2 signs like these before and sold them a few years back and I have been kicking myself ever since. These kinda fell into my lap so I jumped at the chance to get them as I felt my collection had a huge gap left in it when I sold the other ones and now these can take there place and fill that gap. Ken.

Love the leather B/A jacket. A piece you will never find in another collection. I hope you wear it to swap meets.

I picked up this double sided tin BA sign a couple of weeks back. It had a ton of surface rust on both sides. I had to spend a couple of hours with heavy duty compound to clean it up. It was a little tricky in just cleaning the white areas since the coloured parts are somewhat faded and I wanted to preserve what was there. I haven't seen this sign before but I presume it stands up on top of a rack. If anyone has any info on it I would appreciate hearing more. Cheers, Don.

Those are two nice signs Don, I would assume the same as you did, they would most likely be part of a battery & tire rack. Very cool find!

I posted in the wanted adds but thought it might get more looks here. Picked up a set and half of these cards and I'm looking for ones pictured so I can have front and back side by side under glass. Only the back side of the card needs to be in nice shape.

Don, that is a cool sign, I have never seen one either. I just picked up another B/A Dealer magazine, they have great pictures of items available from B/A and I can get a grasp on different items and signs etc and the years available.
Johnay, I remember as a kid I had a number of those cards, I have gone back to the farm numerous times to try and find even a few of them and can't find any of them. Ma must have cleaned up after me at one point and threw them away maybe, sniff.
