Living History With Vintage Advertising Signs

The past always leaves traces of itself behind, and this is certainly true with Vintage Advertising Signs. They are not only treasured by collectors, but they tell a story. They are moments frozen by the artist, and pictures that depicted a culture of products, companies, businesses, laws, or ways of thinking in the past.

Historical moments such World War II wars and bonds for sale is one example. Another example are signs relating to the cold war. Today they are highly sought after and valued by collectors.

Other movements that led to changes in laws can be traced with advertising. Movements such as those involving labor, women's working rights, and laws and regulations relating to the workplace can be observed. These are rare relating to the women's movement. Because tin was melted and reused during the years of the World War II, many of the tin signs were destroyed. Those that survive are treasured icons from history.

Other industries, that over time died out, can also be traced to signage. Cowboys on the range, once a bustling business, drawing men throughout the land to come and settle landscapes and steer cattle is no longer a valued profession as in times past. We can, however, still hear the words of cowboys on the frontier ringing from the past in advice still hanging on restaurant walls.

Lyrics can be found relating to the blues, folk music, and rock and roll, painted on signs as well. Such lyrics were used to advertise businesses, services, and sales. Words of greats became ingrained into the culture and tell of a historical and magical time in music.

Highly sought after signage relates to the arts and famed actresses and actors, as well as musicians. Collectors still are willing to pay high prices for advertising relating to the golden age of Hollywood. There is also advanced interest in past music groups, especially those whose music lives on in our culture today.

In addition, with signage one can trace a culture deeply connected to the arts. Because of this lives of legendary movie stars still carry interest and mystique. Advertising related to these superstars are not only sought after, but highly valued.

Other items related to business and its history are also popular. Top sellers are soda pop companies, domestic automakers, car dealers, cars, candy, farm equipment, fire engines, and city letters related to past laws or regulations. Also car emblems, fire and police, road directions, historical signs, outlived laws, and laws related to past practices that today are outlawed. Popular also are valet signs, restroom and cigar, enter and exit, and car parts.

The beginning of a business, city, product, and even the culture of art can be captured in Vintage Advertising Signs. Through them people are able to understand past practices, cultures of business, and even societal norms. The arts can be traced as elements that helped shaped culture, language and ways of perceiving the world.
