A Sign of the [Old] Times

Post by 60south »

And now for something a little different...

We did a cleanup dive near Point Hudson today and pulled up an old gasoline sign. It was newly exposed by winter storms, I think, because we'd never seen it before. It took a lot of digging and a 50# lift bag to get it to shore. This is a keeper!

Haven't quite figured out the era yet. Any ideas how old it is?

Best thing we ever found was a 1955 license plate off of the floating bridge in Lake Washington. Perfectly preserved, registration tab, etc.
