How about this Shell Household Kit. It's got my DNA all over, spilled lots of drool over it at Tom's birthday party!

Got this post card from a 90+ year old guy several years ago. Said he used to work at a Shell station as a kid. In mint condition....

Thanks to Bob Richards for sending these in today.

"I am really enjoying your Company of the month salute, you are doing a great job. I have a couple of shell items I am sending photos of. Not sure that if I posted them they would come out right. Use any or none of them. One item I have a am sending a photo of, is a service station lease between P.H. Smith, his wife Alta and Shell in 1929 in the city of Barlow OR. I find it interesting for the rent is $1.00 per month and is a 5 year lease. The lease is dated 2/15/29. The other photos are a blotter from 1952 and a couple of coins."

Thanks, Frank.

I've never seen that kerosene flange sign in porcelain, or a white pectin.

Well, we have about 3 hours left in the month, left coast time at least, and I just wanted to give a huge
thanks to all who've contributed here. I've had a lot of fun doing this.

Feedback is welcome, I would be interested to know if anyone learned anything from
the historical side, or what you liked the most.

And a final thanks to my personal assistant, Shelly, who performed all of the research and never
complained a bit. It's time for her to return to her phone booth, but here's a pic of her listening
to me explain the finer points of a Shell globe:
