We got this cool Sterling Gas sign from a collector in NC last year and finally got the paint stripped off of it and got it on a pole in the new parking annex at Lakeside Storage in Provo today. I read something about the history of the Company a couple of years ago but just can't remember it. I do recall that 2 Sterling Brothers and later their sister were the founders of Humble Oil in Humble Texas back in 1911, but I'm not sure if there was any connection? Any help about the beginnings of the Company would be greatly appreciated. I quite like the sign even tho I don't remember the history. Since part of our Museum is dedicated to educating the public about the history of each of the gas/oil companies who's signs we have, it would be nice to know the history of this one.
