What is the location of the Occident Flour sign that is posted on your website. One is currently being restored in Fairbury IL and we are trying to pinpoint the time period when these signs were originally popular. I would like to write to the municipality to see if there was any research done on the sign’s origins.
Hi Diane, Thanks for writing! The sign is near St. Johnsbury, VT. A look through Google Images reveals many other Occident Flour signs around the country. My blog on the photo is here: http://www.slowfamilyonline.com/2011/11/photo-friday-occident-flour/
I’d love to hear about whatever you uncover.
