    Here's the photo of my "new" flange sign. After a little research, these signs appeared through the 40s and 50s. Pitsburgh Paints signature was the multi-colored lettering on all their advertisements. The sign has a little charicter, (rust) but that's half the fun of these old signs. The tag-line for Pitsburgh Paints at this time was, "Smooth as Glass".

    Got this sign for Free! Was still on the post outside the business. I just asked if they would part with it.
