SHELL w/ETHYL [porcelain 1 piece pump plate on left] was used 1933-1936. Very few of these plates are known to exist.
SHELL [porcelain sign on right] was used 1937-1946.

bustermonty, that's one of the coolest foreign Shell signs I've seen.

DB, thanks for posting the picture of that pump, it's a celebrity in it's own right. Never even noticed the ultra rare pump plate on it before.

Fifteen inch "west coast" globe. Actually used not just on the west coast but as far east as Texas, I'm not quite sure on the extent of Shell of California marketing.



And it's eastern cousin



Ultra rare fifteen inch lens from a prominent local collector in Tacoma

From lastgas15 Bob Drake:



"These last few pictures are of my son Darrel's collection. He was around 10 years old when he started collecting. He lost interest in collecting petro stuff when he discovered girls and cars. Most of his cans are common but there are a few rare pieces in there. One is an early striped (Roxanna) handy oiler. Another is the shell shaped plastic handy oiler in the last picture.
He also has a Shell Insecticide burlap bag, and a rare Jimmy Allen Aero Shell puzzle."











Thanks Bob, we'll have more from him later

Some killer items from John O'Hern. I've never seen the "no smoking" sign before. The Roxana globe is similar in condition to mine. Next to impossible to find one that the red hasn't gone away on.











Thanks John,

Thanks to all for the photos ! Always had Shell stuff around. Dad and uncles ran "Shell-A-Rama" on Route 17 North in Mahwah, NJ c.1960 across the highway from Pal's Diner. Also good friend George "Mr. Packard" Jepson had the Shell in Hillsdale, NJ for ages. Would love to get any memorabilia from these places. Ed


Looking for photos, etc from 60s era Shell-A-Rama gas station and Pal's Diner, Rt. 17 Mahwah, NJ
& US or state highway signs, shields, route markers

I've got no idea on the history of this metal box, but it hangs out in my living room...

Here are two maps, 1947 & 1948, from Shell. I'm a bit suprised, that with all the colorful Shell logos, that these are a bit plain....



Anything Chevron

Therm, that's a heck of a nice looking box. Don't know anything about it but it sure appeals to me.

Thanks to Jeff for the maps. Shell put out some great and very graphic maps, the 1929 version being one of the classics, also the 1933 license plate map too. Anybody have some to post?
