    This 6' Shell Sign is the normal 2 piece Shell but it has another single faced sign on the back side of it. Both appear to be from the 30s and both are pretty "weathered". We've noticed that the lower sections of the 2 piece signs are often a little different from each other. We have 4 of the SSP 6' signs at Lakeside Storage and the bottom sections vary from each other.
    A "Pole" Collection wouldn't feel complete without a Shell representative since they are the Compant that really pioneered and developed the Deep Water drilling and platform technology which they shared with BP and others. It was originally the Royal Dutch Shell Company that opened business as Shell Oil in the USA. Like Fina, BP and others, we don't usually think of Shell as a "foreign" Company. The face in the pix came from Salem Oregon and the back face came from Joplin MO. We don't have many Shell Stations in Utah and probably never had any of them in the 30s?

      Another awesome sign...

      Buckethead,
      Thanks for the compliment. Pretty had to find the big 6' shell signs and since they're so big and so old they are usually a bit rough like the 4 we display. Of course I'm also old and it can be easily seen by looking at me in my wheelchair.

      Vetraio50,
      Wow is what I say every day every time I drive up to the huge display. It never gets old and it never doesn't impress me. I just love the old signs and pumps.

      thx for the love it. It's one of our roughest signs but very old and the unique shape is awesome on a pole. Never saw another one on a pole

      Where did you find that pole?
    8. Rattletrap Rattletrap, 4 years ago
      Trey,
      Not sure She'll ever displayed their 2 piece 6' signs on poles so we built our own from 2 antique poles and some creativity
