Artco Sign Company - Neon 'Flying A Service' Sign

Some signs can instantly evoke memories. At Artco Sign Company in the SODO neighborhood of Seattle a vintage gas station sign adorns the front of their business. ‘Flying A Service,’ was the original emblem of Tidewater Oil Company which eventually became Standard Oil. The small, rural neighborhood store that we bought gas from when I was a kid was called Meredith Grocery and they sold Flying A gasoline. Whenever I see one of these vintage signs, I’m immediately transported to the early 1950s, sitting with my sister in the back seat of our 1948 Plymouth, mom in the passenger seat and dad pumping gas. What sign evokes memories for you?

Thanks for joining me today, for the view that is right here! ~ Madge
