For a very short while back in the early 1950s, Sinclair gas stations hung a contraption from their restroom ceilings that produced an ultraviolet ray which they claimed would kill germs and sanitize the lavatory. Apparently it was blamed for several health problems and was quickly discontinued. Production of these signs, which were manufactured at that time, was also discontinued.
Offered here is an extremely rare Sinclair gasoline and oil gas station restroom sign announcing the ultraviolet ray sanitized rest room. It is single-sided, porcelain on metal and has all of the original grommets. It is dated 1950 at the bottom. It is in high grade condition with excellent color and gloss and is one of only a handful known to exist.
