Today was a great day to be a picker! I was over in Defiance, Ohio and picked this 1926 Chevrolet Dealership sign that hung on the outside of the building in the 1920's before The Great Depression. This sign has been in Defiance, Ohio all these years and today it came home with me. There is only one more that exist and I was told the lady wasn't ready to part with it. The sign is special because my last name is Jones and I worked at GM for thirty-five years and am a Chevrolet lover. The sign has the original frame and on the back is stamped St. Louis, Missouri. The sign is large and takes up a lot of real estate on the wall but you will probably never see another one. The sign is 4' x 8'. Just look at the three digit phone number, the abbreviation for Ohio and the way they abbreviate night. The sign has a lot of positive things going for it to also help date it. The Defiance Public Library has this in it's records, which also proves the date of the sign. The Chevrolet Dealership was at 616 Clinton Street Defiance, Ohio. Hope you all enjoy.
