This all original early 1940s Coca-Cola Tin sign is a one of the hardest to find and most sought after signs there is. Besides being so rare, the condition is awesome. This is one of the nicest all original condition vintage signs from the 1940s I've seen around.The subject matter is one that is of historic importance along with the amazing story it tells. In the mid 1930s cities started charging for parking and by the early 1940s every major city had metered parking, which led to businesses offering free parking to help keep people coming into their stores easier. This sign has the words "Free Parking In The Rear" which is so unique and rare and I haven't come across another sign like that.
The detail of those letters is so amazing when you see it up close. They use a Marquee style font which was very popular in the late 1930s and early 1940s. I acquired this sign in Hollywood from a high end Coca-Cola collector that had recently passed on. I believe that this sign could have come from an old Cinema Theater possibly in Hollywood.
With that I can only imagine the history this sign could have seen with all the old school movies and movie stars of the 1940s. Please see the many pictures for the details.
The details of the letters and Coke bottle are amazing. This sign was well preserved and you can tell it was authentically displayed in front of the business by its coloring. The sign measures 71 inches long by 35 inches long.
That's about 6ft by 3ft. It's a very large sign which are very hard to come by. Also many signs were the first things melted down for the war so not many lasted from this era.
