Jensen's of Fairview
Fairview, OK
Jensen's of Fairview was established in 1931 as a Case tractor dealership. Jensen's began selling Buick, Pontiac and GMC in the 1960s so those signs must have been added to the building then. I don't know when the Jensen's sign was built but the building might have been built or remodeled in the 1940s. These photos are from 2011. In 2012, the Case Eagle statue was stolen. [map]
