Some Fleet-Wing license attachments. I have never seen a SOHIO attachment but some type probably exists.

A neat brochure titled "ABC Book of Flying".
Dated 1929. Includes Airplane parts, how it flies, Pilot requirements, aircraft markings,
maneuvers, instrumentation, aviation history and a listing of all airports in Ohio. Book was inspired by the recent purchase of an aircraft by the Standard Oil Company of Ohio for the purpose of "further upbuilding aviation activities in Ohio". The aircraft is called the "Sohioan".

A picture of the "Sohioan" from the brochure. It is described as an advanced version of the plane Lindbergh used for his famous flight.

An unusual collapsible drinking cup. The lid pictures Mickey Mouse. I have seen Mickey used with Chevron and Sunoco but this is the only SOHIO item I have seen him used on.

Being headquartered in Cleveland use of the Cleveland Indians in advertising was a natural. The following items show that link.


1957 Sohio Cleveland Indians baseball card book giveaway, also made one for the Cincinnati Reds. Card examples are of Roger Maris when an Indian before being traded to Yankees and 300 game winner Early Wynn. This one was given out by Redmond's Super Service Sohio, Lake Rd. & Carpenter Rd. Ashtabula , Ohio

Some photos from the book.

A bumper sticker.

I've got an embossed SOHIO visible pump price box somewhere but can't find it, so I guess that's all I have to post. Besides, it's the end of the month and time for the next company. Once again I would like to thank those who posted or sent photos. I also appreciate the favorable comments from many fellow oldgasers.
