CTA Bus Stop sign information
Date: April 09, 2011 02:33PM
I recently picked up this CTA bus stop sign on Ebay. It was the type that was mounted on a pole secured to the sidewalk. I was wondering...
...if someone might have a photo of one in use? And an approximate date of usage?
...if someone might have information on the actual, original color scheme? In cleaning the sign up a bit before restoring, I see what appears to be original red paint on the background and over the raised "BUS STOP" letters(primer coat?), green paint on the background over the red, and green paint residue over the CTA circular logo. I have a hunch the circular CTA logo may have been in original service in the unpainted natural silver color and repainted in the CTA green color, but it is hard to tell.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
BTW, can someone tell me why there is such a gap between my message and the photo? Can't figure out how to fix.
