I got it out of an old independent foreign-car shop some years ago. The owner of the shop told me the sign was of 1955 vintage.

did you lay down that checkerboard floor in your bathroom so it feels like your camper has a toilet?

i picked the esso one up at the volksworld show this year.

Here is one of my favorites.

It was made in the 30's by a German company named 'Boos u. Hahn' located in Ortenberg / Baden. It measures 64 x 90 cm.

The image is of a famous German motorcycle and race car driver Bernd Rosemeyer. He was a test driver for the German car company 'Auto Union'. Bernd Rosemeyer won most of the important races in 1936 and 1937. He was killed January 1938 during a test drive with a top speed 440 km/h.

Here is a nice video about Rosemeyer with some cool images. Keep in mind this is all pre-war stuff.
