Hello, I am new to the forum and was hoping someone could help provide me with some additional historical background on the Prairie City Oil Co. from Winnipeg Manitoba. I have owned a tin sign from it for about 20 years and am preparing to sell it due to a move. I saw a similar sign recently sold and this is comparable. I would appreciate any information you can share. Thank you.

Welcome to OG.
Prairie City and Cities Oil was active in the 1910s to the late1930s when it was bought out by North Star Oil and Gas.
Here is a more complete version.

Welcome to Old Gas. There are a number of members in the lower mainland sharing the passion. As Fred mentioned above, Prairie Cities sold out to North Star in 1938 which was then bought out by Shell Canada in 1960 or so. Great sign.
