el the American Sip Co., of Kalamazoo,
at the State Fair at Richmond, Va. This exhibit was awarded
medal of merit by the State Fair Association, showing the first
moving effect ever produced in an interior illuminated sign in the
waving American flag and in a fish presenting the appearance of
swimming, both of which are very explicit in every detail.
This display was in charge of Bayard H. Storm, of Richmond,
general agent for Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina,
assisted by R. D. Ryan, T. B. Sale and Ford B. Strough, superin?
tendent of agencies for the company.
The "American Lens Electric Sign" is not only maintained
at a current saving of 80 per cent, but is guaranteed to be a longe
leader and more distinctly legible than any sign the market af?
fords. The beauty of the signs was highly complimented, and
their efficiency, durability and economy of operation were made
manifest by a thorough inspection of the signs on exhibition.
These signs are becoming rapidly introduced, as a large num?
ber are now under construction for installation in Richmond and
points throughout the entire territory.
