Fading Ad: Oil Coal Gas Furnaces

Furnaces

Unusual find, on River Street in downtown Batavia, Illinois, where my mom lives. Other than ads I've seen on barns, this is the first one that I can remember seeing that was painted on wood instead of brick. And I don't even know what the name of the company was. And Google didn't clarify much, either. Nice little mystery.

In the 1990s, while riding into Chicago from Elkhart, IN, I noticed a Sahara Coal coalyard on the South Side of Chicago. It's gone now, but there must have been people using coal for heating even then.
