The background is light gray with a light blue border. The lettering is mostly black with some light blue. The upper third of the sign above the lettering shows a 1920s-era black steam locomotive pulling a dark green REA baggage car that is being loaded/unloaded by two workers in brown and white clothes using a green baggage wagon with red wheels. To the right of the scene below the locomotive is a green and red 1920s-era REA motor truck with solid rubber tires. The sign has a thick cardboard liner behind the tin with the tin edges permanently folded over to hold the liner in place indicating that the sign was meant for indoor use or in a well-sheltered outdoor location. REA was a national service and its signs were used throughout the country. this is the website for the Indiana state Museumhttp://museumcollections.in.gov/detail.php?t=objects&type=browse&f=date_made&s=1920&record=0
