    Four more 7Up UnCola Billboards from 1969 (21' wide x 10' tall):
    "Un & Un Is Too" by Kim Whitesides, 1969 (zoom in close - awesome!)
    "The Youth Fare" (bi-plane) by Bob Taylor, 1969
    "UnCanny In Cans" by John Alcorn, 1969
    "# Un In The Sun" by Pat Dypold, 1969

    These are very recent acquisitions that are still in the process of being repaired as needed, photographed on a vacuum table (panel-by-panel) and Photoshopped into collages. These photos show the various conditions I receive "30-sheet" billboards in. They have to be flattened out over time before the restoration can begin. Each of the 12 panels is about 43" wide x 59" tall (the bi-plane has different panel sizes).

      Our house was built in 1965 and forever featured one of Kim's billboard pieces. The first owner was an exec with 7up and used the extra sheets to do a collage for the wraparound stairs to the basement. Howard Spies formerly Worthington OH c. 1976-2000

      Howard - was the poster still up when you moved out? It would be interesting to see if the current owner left it displayed in the house.
