Surely one of the most elaborate examples of signage we’ve ever seen, Mr. Euber’s ornate mural borders on being folk art. The pastoral scene on the left contrasts sharply with the dire recovery scene on the right which clearly makes the point that no job was too big for his wrecker service. The placard out front advertising five cent beer offers the promise of affordable solace to the poor motorist whose car had just been brought in on the hook.
We do not know location of this distinctive enterprise other than it was in the New Orleans area. If any of our readers can find any of the details of the station or it’s location please send us a comment. You can also find many more photos of service stations and tow trucks here on The Old Motor. Photo courtesy of the Louisiana Digital Library.
