Morgan may have a good point. It may have been painted by someone. Early Marathon stations had runners on top of the building. I am curios as to how tall they are.
These two versions of a Runner are the only ones I have seen like this. About 20" tall.
First time I saw it was in an old Bulk Plant photo, Someone had put on the front of a car.
Second place I have actually seen it, is the the Executive Dining room in Marathon's Findlay home office building.
There was a runner on top of some of the buildings in the 1940's. Still looking for a photo of one.
