Advertisement for Standard Oil of New York (SOCONY)

[Advertising Illustration]

A cover mailed by an oil delivery company contained this interesting advertisement for the Standard Oil Company of New York. If memory serves, this company was just one of the smaller oil companies formed as a result of the breakup of the Standard Oil trust. The letters "SOCONY" were a familiar sight on gas station signs in New York for many decades. The company is now known as Mobil, and I seem to recall that the logo was a flying horse.
