Sign Painters During World War II

My father James Wilson and the rest of these sign painters "donated" their services for the war effort. My father was a sign painter for many years 1919 - 1968. Walls Bulletin Boards Trucks. He told me he painted a wall in the Chicago stock yards advertising Armour meats, the "A' in Armour was sixty feet high. It was hand drawn or layed out as he would say. - James A. Wilson Jr , April 19, 2005
