Vtg Industrial New York City Bus Trolley Streetcar Destination Sign Coney Island For Sale
Vtg Industrial New York City Bus Trolley Streetcar Destination Sign Coney Island
Inspired by the Fourth of July, tonights sales have been chosen to represent all the very BEST of us. I have always been drawn to the unique, handmade, charming, down home items...so tonight I am offering up examples of what makes America...well....America! All of tonights items are survivors, strongly individual, charmingly quirky pieces of our past. A very wise friend reminded me of the simple beauty of seeing a small child waving our flag......so after the parades, hotdogs and fireworks...please take a peek at some of my items above as I have tried to capture just a small piece of us. As always..please ENJOY!
I am very excited to offer a true piece of American history! This sale offers a vintage industrial mid century 40's (best guess) New York City bus, trolley, subway or streetcar destination sign. ( sorry, I grew up with cows!) Straight from a New York city sale and one of two I am listing. This is a large square metal box with crank. Inside is a roll of linette type fabric with black and white street names and destinations. This list contains Coney Island, Kings Highway, Aqueduct Race Track and more. Twenty plus names. I would date this to the 40's or so. The list of names are: No Passengers, Special, Coney Island, Kings Highway, B'klyn - Church Ave Smith - 9th St, Aqueduct Race Track, Rockaway Park, Far R'K'Way - Mott Ave, Fulton - Letterts Blvd, Fulton - Euclid Ave, Hudson Terminal, Houston- 2ND Ave, Houston - Layfayette St, and Sixth Ave - 34TH St (2 repairs to this one). There appears to be two of each, maybe one of a couple. In very nice condition with a few repairs and some edge loss in only a few places. Measures in case: 7 1/2" x 6" x 27" without crank. This would be a real statement piece or could be broken up with each area framed for resale. True Americana ...with a New York flair!
