The Union Cartage Company / Steel City Trucking

Youngstown, OH: N.p., Circa 1930s. Vintage stainless steel sign with hand painted lettering, advertising two trucking companies on either side, circa 1930s.

An early piece of trucking Americana, originating from Youngstown, Ohio. Noted on both sides of the sign is the PUCO (Public Utilities Commission of Ohio) number, issued to intrastate trucking firms starting in the 1920s. An intriguing and unusual sign, likely used by an independent trucking operator in Ohio, who would have needed to display one side or the other, depending on the company he was working for at any given point.

17.5 x 11.5 inches. Very Good plus, with moderate wear on the "Steel City Trucking" side.
