I saw coke1234's post. I got this sign in 1972 off the side of a old brick building in a real small town in Idaho. Can't remember the name. I was on my honeymoon headed for Yellowstone. I knocked on the door to find the owner of the building and was told where he lived. I told him I was interested in the sign and if he wanted to sell it. He told me he wanted that sign off the building for years and if I took it down I could have it. I told him I didn't have a ladder. He told me to go down to the High School and tell the janitor to loan me a ladder. That's how I got this sign. Notice the original porcelain brackets. It has a couple of rock chips. I know when I was a kid we threw rocks at signs. One more thing. When I was pulling the sign away from the building, a bate came flying out. It scared me so bad I almost fell off the ladder. Sign was made in 1933.
