35 Different Circa 1930 Americana Trolley Signs

35 Different Circa 1930 Americana Trolley Signs

It's not hyperbole that leads us to call this astonishing collection of trolley signs from the 1920s and 1930s a buried treasure. The signs, emblazoned with slogans for everything from Lucky Strike cigarettes to Campbell's Soup to Super Suds to Iodine Tooth Whitener to Sun-Maid Raisins, were actually discovered buried inside a wall after apparently being used as insulation. They obviously have seen better days, and some are quite fragile, yet their vivid colors and All-American themes -- "Don't those folks look happy around their own fireplace?" reads the sign for Blair Home Company -- revive the optimism and promise of those innocent times.
