Why purchase this Embossed Early Lumber Company Tin License Plate Topper Sign?

Step back in time to the 1930's with this Early Lumber Company tin license plate topper. The company used products like this one to advertise their business. This was a novel approach to advertising given that cars only began driving American roads in the previous decades. The company took advantage of the opportunity and saw its popularity grow. This sign was produced in St. Paul, Minnesota by B & B. Made of embossed tin, it weighs about 4 ounces. This piece measures 9" x 3", meaning that a collector would not need much space to put it on display.

The 1930's was an important time in American history. The decade saw much of the Great Depression and saw the country begin to emerge from it. The role of government changed dramatically as President Franklin Delano Roosevelt introduced his New Deal programs. Construction projects such as the Hoover Dam improved the country's infrastructure. Perhaps most importantly, the decade saw the beginning of the Second World War. Although the United States did not formally enter the war until 1941, the dominoes that led to the nation's eventual entry into it began falling in the 1930's.
