I always thought that if the best service you got was just the "standard service" it would not be very good? Perhaps in the "olden days" when this sign was made "Standard Service" was really excellent Service? It seems that this sign design was fairly popular as we found one up in Montana and this one came from a tiny town in Iowa while returning from a picking trip to Joplin Mo. It appears that Standard, which is now Chevron, decided that "Standard Service" is not a very impressive way to advertise their Service anymore as I don't ever see Standard service offered except to entice you to "upgrade" to a more expensive "better service", as in Airline seating choices? In any event these old porcelain signs are very old and probably from the 20s-30s from what we are told. Remember that "the fun is in the hunt"! You can see these signs FREE as a part of the private Petrolania Collection displayed at aaaLakeside Storage in Provo Utah.
