That's a beautiful picture from, I think, North Hollywood during the Eisenhower or Kennedy years. It's a few years before my time, but I've been interested in that era and its automotive culture ever since I cam acroos this article almost a year and a half ago about an East Coast phenomenom.

Quote
"For Giants fans, it's a lifelong commitment," Renstrom said. "Some would call it a sickness."

A sickness that actually made the Connecticut economy healthier on Sundays in the 1960s. Back then, home games were blacked out in local markets even if they were sold out. That meant people crossed the borders from New York to Connecticut to watch the Giants on what was then known as WTIC-TV, Channel 3, a CBS station.

It became a ritual for fans to visit bars in the New Haven area or rent motel rooms in Connecticut. The Yale Motor Inn in Wallingford was a popular spot, and some establishments offered special rates to lure fans from New York.

When the Giants-Packers NFL title game in 1962 was televised, fans from New York came as far north as the Berlin Turnpike to find motel rooms.
That game was on Channel 30, an NBC station. Because that signal did not carry as well as Channel 3, New Yorkers had to drive even farther into the state to watch the broadcast.

The blackout rule did not change until 1973, so the migration of fans from New York to Connecticut continued through the 1960s. Giants fans dominated the state.

Glad I could take you on a pleasant trip down Memory Lane. Also. TIL that oil companies use to have SandP shakers. I thought your handle meant Sand P.

I remember the tank farm being there on the opposite side of the trail from the WPRO radio station. Lots of good memories for me from the time I lived in Barrington.

Good point Randy. I cropped too much of the image. The connection outlined in blue screws into the top of the "T" where the round handle is located that turns on/off fuel flow to the swing arm spigot. The pipe exiting the top of the connection in question is the gasoline discharge pipe that ends at hose. It could be a check valve. If the swing arm valve at the "T" is opened so that gasoline flows out the swing arm to the spigot, what keeps gasoline from also flowing up the discharge pipe; path of least resistance? I hope this explanation makes sense.

First off let me say that I am by no means a sign expert. But, I have one of these signs that I have had for eons and am sure is real. I know there were some variations, mine says "Ask For" at the top instead of "We Sell". Mine is approximately 16 3/4 x 22 and has a date code and date at the bottom in small print on both sides (mine says 5024 A-M 11-51). I notice this sign doesn't have that. Mine also has four holes punched around the perimeter instead of the two at the top. All this just for your information, not saying it proves a thing. Good luck....GB

Don't know anything about value but these signs were discussed on Old Gas before and I think it was determined that the signs were on generators back in the day.
