Hi All. Can anyone help me find the artwork or a resource to duplicate the Lee Overall sign on a building that was visible in many photos of Dearborn Station in Chicago? I am having no luck at all.

Thanks in advance.

Bud,
I checked through my files and this is all I could find. I'll look further and check if my buddies have anything.
Here is one other place you may want to try. There are a few here.

Hello,

I went through all my signs and came up with this one but I have no idea if it's the one you want that's on the station.

Hi Bud, looks like a really neat painted sign you are after,sorry I can't help you.
But I did find these 2 old metal signs in the walls of an old store I renovated,advertising overalls.

Bud,
Here is a little better picture of the building sign that Russ posted.
This one was taken in 1989.
