On to the globes. These have been fairly difficult to find in really nice condition, and I probably should have listened to some early advice to get the different globes and upgrade later!
Cities Service had a lot of different globes and I have a long way to go!!

I picked up a couple items along the way that I wanted to use to identify my little operation and I had some glass made for them, so these4 items are fantasy pieces made for Devils Lake Oil Company Collectibles!

I'm not really a can collector, but I knew I would need some Cities Service cans to display in my collection, and there are so many that I decided to go with the earliest ones that I could find! I have a tough time passing up an early Cities Service can. LOL
The 3 can racks are NOS items from here in Devils Lake!

Heres the last of my Cities Service cans! I was actually able to find a very rare Cities Service sprayer to go along with the very rare Dairy cattle spray can!

On to the last of my Cities Service passions! THE SIGNS!
I have both common and some ultra rare, so I hope there is something new for everyone in this section!

The green Cities Service Ahead is a rare double sided example and is a NOS sign that came from here in Devils Lake. The one with the black accents on the sign, came from the Cities Service station in Langdon, North Dakota! First one I've ever seen with the black accents!
The Koolmotor kite sign is the best example of this sign that I have been able to buy so far! I'm still looking for that "perfect" one!

More Cities Service signs! The first 2 are 10 inch pump plates with license plate toppers from Abrahamson Service stations(Shorewood & Milwaukee). The other 3 are all lubester signs, for on top the pump and on the tank itself!

The first picture is 2 more ten inch pump plates along side a very nice original Cities Service Pam clock.
The clover shaped sign is a 15 inch truck door sign that is NOS, and the round one is another example of a truck door sign in the round version. A good 9+ sign!

The first sign is a 21 inch, the second is a rare 32 inch and the third is a 36 incher! All very nice examples of their various sizes.

The round "KOOLMOTOR" signs are both 24 inchers and the second one has differernt wording on each side, so the second and third pictures are of the same sign.
The Koolmotor clover shaped sign is actually a curb sign and I have all the pieces but haven't finished putting it together yet.

I just finished hanging the 48 inch clover and its hanging from a green porcelain coated sign pole I found a couple years back. The sign itself is an NOS example that I picked up at the Columbia swap meet.
The round sign is an NOS 42 incher in the original hanging ring that I bought from Koolmotor George when he was dispersing his collection.
The flange is a very early tin flange sign that was still spelling the word GASOLENE.
The Crew-Levick and KOOLMOTOR are both porcelain strip signs.
