Johnson Oil Refining Company #789326 03/22/2023 6:26 PM
by Jigawatts
Someone may be able to answer a question regarding a Johnson sign that I have never seen photographed or in any book? If you wouldn’t mind helping I would appreciate it!

Looking to find out exactly where this sign could have been used as in bulk plant, headquarters, or wherever as I do not believe it was used at the stations….?

Thanks in advance,

My first thought was the same a John, cut down sign. Especially since there are no mounting holes along the top. But if its a porcelain sign a cut along the top should be very obvious, and I agree with you, I dont know any signs with the "time tells" on the bottom anyway.

Maybe whomever was making these signs in "ye olde times" used the round blanks, cut it down, and put on these different graphics. You would have thought they'd flange it though. Strange.
