A few Smokey the Bear forestry lids:








Vintage Philly frontpieces, the WSC is Water Supply Company;








Perhaps the first frontpiece you want to see at a job...or maybe the last you want to see...




Here is a clever Boston Captains frontpiece, looks like he "added" the second bugle to his former Lt frontpiece, notice the decal off-center. Very clever...that's why he was a Captain I suppose...
