Nameplate for an early 1940s Fitzjohn Bus


Recommended Posts

I saw this piece for the first time a little over a year ago.  I guess it would be fair to say it's a pretty obscure item.  For some reason, from the moment I saw it, I wanted it.  


My Uncle Bob was a lifelong bachelor.  After being discharged from the military in the early 1940s, he became a devoted fisherman.  He loved spending time in the national park campgrounds of East Tennessee.  He owned numerous camper trailers in his life, and for a time, he owned a couple of old passenger buses that had been converted into campers.


I remember seeing the buses once, and the odd name "Fitzjohn" stuck with me.  That's what I thought of when I saw this hanging in a guy's garage.  I thought I'd post a photo, just for the fact that it is such an oddball item.
