  1. Wonderful site and a boat-load of work. Thanks for your efforts. I was asked if any of these Standard Oil Bulletin illustrations were ever repeated in roadside billboards? Some say that the a wolf illustration made it to the roadside circa 1932. Ever hear of such a thing?

  2. I don't know if the art was ever adapted for billboards but it seems like a good idea and possibility.
