Here is a Old Reading Beer Gillco Sign from the Old Reading Brewing Company located in Reading, PA. This Old Reading Beer Gillco Sign is from the 1940’s era and is in excellent condition for it’s age. Signs like this one would have been displayed on the bar back of taverns and distributors to advertise Old Reading Beer to patrons. This Old Reading Beer Gillco Sign was made by the Gillco Glass Sign Company located in Philadelphia, PA. Gillco sign styles like this one are known as a taxi cab light as well as a cab light, because of how they resemble the light on top of a taxi cab car so they are known as gillco cab lights.
There is actually a second variation of this Old Reading Beer Gillco Sign. That variation is very similar except it reads “Pale Reserve” instead of “Relax with Old Reading”. Old Reading Pale Reserve was one of the Old Reading Brewery’s flagship beers produced at the time. I am currently searching for that variation to add to my personal collection.
