I know....I know.....this recent picture of my one year old grandson Jack doesn't have any obvious connection to Ashland Oil.......





But he's just SO CUTE I couldn't resist!!! There actually is a connection......his dad was born just one month after I started to work for Ashland back on September 1, 1971.

If that won't fly.......maybe this Freedom Oil can will.....

Richard, a man that used to work for Freedom Oil Works long ago told me an amusing story about how the "F.C." came to be that's on their oil cans. It was just on a whim at the moment when trying to come up with a name. But now many years later, I can't remember what the F.C. stands for. Do you know? Sam

Can't help you Sam.......I don't have a clue about what the "FC" stands for.......maybe someone else out there knows and will share it with us.

I did notice via eBay that Freedom High School in Freedom, PA. has a Bulldog as their mascot (the "Freedom Bulldogs"). I think the company was founded in the 1870's, so I'm guessing the oil company came before the high school.....if so, then it's likely they picked their mascot from the oil company logo. I wonder how common that is?

Here's s few more of my Freedom items........the first is a single-sided painted metal sign that's 30" x 22"......it's an original, not one of the repo's I've seen offered on eBay.





Next is a license plate attachment.....

More of my Freedom signs..........the first is a 24" DSP.........




.....and the second is a framed CREPE PAPER sign.....I assume it was meant to be hung in a station or store window....it's one of my favorites.





(I had it framed....it came to me rolled up in a cardboard tube)

This is my last Ashland-related item, and probably the best. It's a 30" double sided, painted metal sign that would grade out at least 9.5+ on both sides......and actually does qualify as a "new-old-stock" piece.





It came from Canada and included the following information from the previous (second) owner........."We owned and operated the old general store that the sign was originally mailed to. The store has been in operation since about 1911, and the previous owner, who died back in the 1970's, was an honest-to-goodness packrat! The sign was found in its old original cardboard mailing package in a dusty corner of the attic. It's marked Fairbanks Fiber Box Co. in Middletown, Ohio and is addressed to Matthew Watson, Carcross, Yukon Territory,Canada."

The sign itself is marked "Made in U.S.A.- Fogarty Dayton Ohio - 3215". The sign's never been used, and was hung for the first time on my wall. I also have the above mentioned original packaging.
