Tiwoser globes and other Tidewater branded items come from Tidewater Oil Service out of Matthews, VA. They became a Pure Oil jobber in 1952 and were still in business as a Union Oil (successor to Pure) jobber when I left eastern VA in the 1980s. Tidewater Oil Company (TWO), operating under the Tydol brand, merged with Associated (Late 1930s), consolidated into a single Flying A image and brand in the early 1950s, and rebranded Getty in 1970. The Getty brand remains in limited use today under successive ownership.
