Vintage Dunlop Strip Sign: "Tire Safety Specialists" Embossed Tin
This is an original, vertically oriented, 60 inches tall by 14 inches wide, vintage Dunlop strip sign. It is an embossed tin litho, and is a single sided sign that was used as advertising at tire and auto repair shops. This is an original sign from the 1970's. It has a primarily yellow background, with a red border around the edges of the sign, and with black and red logos and lettering. There is a Dunlop "D" Logo at the top of the sign, and the sign reads "Dunlop Tire Safety Specialists". Per the maker's mark, this sign was manufactured in August of 1977 by Allen Morrison Sign Company of Lynchburg, Virginia, U.S.A.. Like all of our signs, it is in original, unrestored condition, and as can be see in the pictures this sign is in excellent condition (close to near mint) for a nearly 50-year-old sign, with very little wear, and no significant damage, as pictured. We believe in keeping signs in unrestored condition, because these blemishes are part of the history and story of the sign.

Allen-Morrison Sign Co. History
The Allen-Morrison Sign Company was a prominent sign-making company that was founded in 1919 and based in Lynchburg, West Virginia. hey produced metal signs for many large oil companies, and also had contracts with Coca-Cola and other soft drink companies. (Photo's by Lynchburg Photos). The company was known for its high-quality craftsmanship and attention to detail, and it created signs for a wide variety of businesses, from small local stores to large corporations. The company's early signs were hand-painted and made of materials such as wood, metal, and glass. However, as technology advanced, the company incorporated newer materials and techniques into its work, including neon signs and more efficient lighting systems.
Allen-Morrison remained a family-owned and operated business throughout its history, and it was known for its commitment to customer service and its ability to create custom signs that met the unique needs of each client. In addition to traditional signs, the company also created billboards and other outdoor advertising and provided installation and maintenance services for its products. During the 1940's and 1950's, Allen-Morrison was one of the major manufacturers of porcelain signs in the United States, producing approximately 80% of the porcelain signs in the country during this era. This number is testament to the quality of their workmanship and their reputation as a leading sign-making company. The company's porcelain signs were highly regarded for their quality, durability, and vibrant colors, and are considered to be some of the most collectible vintage signs today.
Despite its success and reputation for quality work, the Allen-Morrison Sign Company eventually closed its doors in 1990, as a result of changing economic and technological factors (such as the proliferation of plastic signs). However, its legacy lives on, and its signs can still be seen in many communities throughout West Virginia and the United States.
