This looks like the typical advertising thermometer but it is half the size and says "Sample No.220" just under the address. It is just under 7" long. Not sure if the Ryan Funeral Home was real or not. This was before there were 555 numbers for fictional phone numbers. I tried to match up the phone number with the name of the business and phone number but had no matches.
I am thinking it is half size to fit in the carrying case of a travelling salesman. He would have a suitcase full of samples and travelled in a bus.
Perhaps putting the Fun in Funerals would have been a good slogan. Well I have to come up with something to wrap up the post.
