Great post of some rare signs. I have seen a few people in the past put Cities Service pump plates on here. There is some doubt in my mind that they did have pump plates. Anyone here that can post a definite pump plate from Cities Service.Also could these pump plates have possibily been truck door signs, lubester signs. I have never found any of these in over 30 yrs.Tnx

Interesting to see a spelling error on a painted sign. I guess Midway couldn't afford a proofreader.

That's even more interesting in a porcelain sign. (There should be no apostrophe in "it's.")

Misuse of the apostrophe is still rampant in the sign/advertising business today-just start looking around. It only mirrors the culture though; many people just can't resist throwing one after a plural.

Cities Service used porcelain pump plates in both the round and clover shapes (10 inch).The photo with the clock shows the 2 different configurations of pump plates!
They also had porcelain lubester plates that were slightly over 9 inches and had a different mounting configuration.I've only ever found round lubester plates, and these smaller paddle types!
The last 2 pictures are of the lubester plates. Notice the different mounting holes on the round plate!

The truck door plates came in both the round and clover versions and were 16 inches in size. Here are 2 examples of those!

Nice signs Kevin. Never found one in my part of the world.Anyone have pic's of Cities Service trucks with door signs? When I restored my 41 IH gas truck the only pics I could find on the net of old trucks were decals or painted on. I had heard of older lubesters with signs but never found any.

One of my rarest pump plates. This one is tin lithographed, from the middle 1950s
