Paul Jones & Co., Self Framed Tin Sign, Louisville KY. Circa 1910

Here is a fantastic self framed tin sign from the Paul Jones and Company whiskey, rye, bourbon and gin distillery in Louisville, Kentucky.   Paul Jones was notorious for putting out a lot of quality tin signs for many of their products, but this Old Comrade metal sign was perhaps their most famous one.   The slogan on the sign says “Comrades for 81 years” and the paper label bottles indicates this was a rye whiskey product.  However, I often wonder if whiskey made you look like this guy after drinking it for too many years. LOL.   As a result of this advertising campaigns acceptance, this sign was used in many saloons and taverns for years prior to the Prohibition era.  A great pre-pro era piece of memorabilia!
