this BP sign is pretty old, it has the black shadow around the letters wich was used during the 1940's. the sign is made of wood and was painted.
There is a label on the back from the manufacter but was pretty damaged and unreadable. I got it from a militaria collector

picture 2 is before I cleaned it just coming from the barn

picture 3 is the pic from the label on the back of the sign

    I've managed to take a picture of the label from the back, it was pretty damaged but we can still read from where it came, the sign was produced in Belgium by "Publicite Brouckxou" in Brussels, there was an address "7 avenue guillaume lefever auderghem Bruxelles"

    In 4 years of collecting I only crossed two of those signs, this one I bought and another, not many of them survived and I couldn't get any information from this company wich didn't exist anymore

    I hope to find one day a picture of a station where it was used
