Along with the Texaco star, the Shell scallop, and the Mobil flying horse, the Sinclair dinosaur stands as one of the most emblematic symbols in petroliana. The first Sinclair dinosaurs appeared in 1930, when the company was trying to make the case that the oldest sources of crude make the best oils and lubricants. An image of a dinosaur was a quick was to telegraph this passage of time, and Dino, as he was called, became a beloved mascot, famously appearing with other dinosaurs in Dinoland the the 1964 New York World's Fair.
