Alright, back from the long weekend at Chip's and the globe auction. First we have pictures of a Razor sharpener, and vegetable peeler, next is a couple of canning label books that the stations gave away during WWII, then we have a bag of seeds to plant a "victory garden" (so you would have something to use the canning labels for LOL), 3 post cards that were sent out so you would know what they were giving away at the stations and finally a cardboard travel size backgammon/chess game. Check them out.

Thanks,

Jeff

For tonight, we start off with a regular jar with a Brilliant Bronze oil change sticker attached to it. Notice JORECO written in on it. Next is a couple of clipboards and notebooks, then a embossed screwdriver and salad tongs, then a box of matches, bullet sewing kit and print block. Finally, we have a old "Johnson Ethyl" pinback and the back shot of a "motorist's diary".

Thanks guys,

Jeff

Dwaine, I had a great time meeting all of you. Every time I go to a show, I feel more like a part of the group. Wish we had a little more time to hang out.
In this series of pictures, we have a few toys. The first picture is a matched set of tank trucks of which 600 sets were made by Ertl back in 1992. Not real antiques. The second picture is of our train cars. From left to right, real old toy (1940s) metal, plastic modern day N guage, and then plastic moderm (1980s) plastic lionel. The next picture is of a old model car never put together. We have a receipt with it when a doctor bought it in 1941, model trains were his hobby. He paid $7 for it back then. The last 2 pictures are of a pack of bandaids and a knife honer/sharpener.

Thanks,

Jeff

Alright, these are some of our favorite, more unique items. We have 1 good ad glass that I did a little research and I think came out of a Bowser Clockface. The next 2 pictures are the front and back of a record. I think they used to play this for advertising purposes in the stations. We don't have anything to play this on. It is in great shape. Any ideas on how to get it over to a computer or something a little more modern??? The last picture are 2 glass slides that, I was told, movie theaters used to put up on the screen advertising the stations for filling in between movies. Pretty neat, uh?

Thanks,

Jeff

The next set of pictures are of a "Brilliant Bronze" can opening, multi-tool type thingy, next are metal and cork bottle stoppers and last by not least is my father's and mine most valuable item when it comes to research. Front and back pictures of a 1936 20 page color catalog with cans, displays, logos, and some fuzzy pictures of train cars, stations and the refinery. It is pretty awesome.

Thanks,

Jeff

In this set of pictures we have a couple of polishing cloths with Brilliant Bronze imprinted on them, several brass? locks with Johnson Oil imbossed on them, several different colored and different dated address books with calenders in the back, and 2 booklets that are promo items given away by the stations. They both have a bunch of useless info and a lot of ads for Johnson. The last photo is the ad on the back of both the booklets.

Thanks,

Jeff

Jeff informed me that he's going to run out of days to post before he runs out of stuff to post. Great collection Jeff and Neil!
