Here's a snappy item courtesy of Ed Miller's Chevron Service, located somewhere in Los Angeles. It's the same size as yesterday's wheel and in near-perfect shape. As a bonus, it has household hints!
I had this displayed with the phone side showing and had completely forgotten how much better the other side is. I mean: it's ORANGE! But even the phone side has its merits. The color is bright -- I like the yellow and black, not to mention the nice phone illustration. There is just something "old L.A." about it that I can't describe. Good thing you didn't need area codes back then for local calls. There's not much room, there.
The Household Hints side is clearly the superior side. The inner disc of a deep red-orange paired with the outer yellow and black really make it zing! I like the two women pointing to the words "Household Hints", too. The illustration could be a bit bigger, though.
It has the usual hints about stain removal and cooking shortcuts, but here are a couple I haven't heard of before:
Soak oranges in boiling water for five minutes before peeling. Peel and all white pulp will come off perfectly.
To to avoid cabbage odors, drop a whole walnut in the boiling water.
Here's a hint: To avoid cabbage odors, simply avoid boiling cabbage.
