More paper advertising from the company.


What a great opportunity for advertising, when the 1932 Olympics are in your back yard. A pocket guide to the Olympics and Gilmore products.

How about that spare tire cover? The wooden man, is a sign that you would normally see on top of the Gilmore station, holding the checkered flag.
Also, a nice display of oil cans.

Two different match books, showing different Gilmore advertising on each side. This license plate attachment is cast iron.

Well, that's it on Gilmore Oil, hope you all enjoyed it. Thanks so much to those of you who shared photos with the rest of us. A big thanks to Steve Castelli, who allowed me to photograph his Gilmore collection.
