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.
