Not only neat looking signs, but I'm impressed with what you were able to do with your photo editing program.

Jerry, I did a quick Google search and found this information:

Why a soda poster? I found this poster on EBAY and the story told by the seller was that POP KOLA was a Coca ColaŽ imitation circa WWII that was too close to the real thing...because someone had gotten the actual Coke formula! The lawyers had it out and POP KOLA ceased production. Why is this on the Siler City page? According to the EBAY seller, POP KOLA was bottled by Reitz Bottling Company of Siler City, NC! I have now verified this story from another source. However, Jack Allred states that the name of the company was Reitzel Beverage Company. According to Jack, POP KOLA was short lived. The Reitzel's most popular drink was probably "3 Cent Copper", it also tasted alot like Coca Cola. In addition, another product, Gold Dot soda, was also bottled by Reitzel Beverage Company.

Couldn't find any pictures, though...

For signs, you can use Google Image Search (http://images.google.com/).

For example:
Here are the links to search for "PopKola" where you will find a few images:
http://images.google.com/images?lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=PopKola&sa=N&tab=wi

And "Pop Kola" which is a spelling correction that Google provides:

The Gateway NMRA website has several images available for download including Public Telephone and Coca-Cola signs, building interiors and various background structures and skylines.

See http://www.gatewaynmra.org/download.htm to get the images.

These aren't exactly signs, but they could prove usefull. Oregon trademark labels. Click on the top catagories and then click on the galleries at the bottom. Click on the image to get a larger version to copy.
I have recently used a couple in my barn diorama.
