Why order this Single Sided Train Fare Porcelain Sign?

Train memorabilia enthusiasts are sure to love this single sided porcelain train fare sign. The sign instructs riders to have their fare ready and not to ride on the steps. Although train travel is not nearly as popular in the United States today as it is in other parts of the world, railroads played a crucial role in building and connecting the nation as it grew. Whereas most signs like this one are damaged because they were used heavily, this one remains in Good - Very Good condition. Made by Mercury Novelty Co. in New York, New York, this porcelain sign weighs about four pounds and measures 24" x 24".

The sign dates back to the 1930's one of the most significant decades in terms of the development of the United States as we know it today. The nation built up its infrastructure through projects like the Hoover Dam, and President Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal changed the role of the federal government for good as the nation endured the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl. The decade also saw the start of the Second World War, though the United States did not formally enter the war until the early 1940's. That war established the United States firmly as the leader of the free world, a role that the country retains to this day.
