Old, City Loan of Ohio, Celluloid Advertising Tape Measure

This vintage celluloid tape measure is advertising City Loan with a clever slogan; No Red Tape - See - City Loan for Extra Funds. The other side reads; No Red Tape - See - City Loan - Offices all over Ohio. One side is blue with white and the other side is white with blue. It was made by the Parisian Novelty Co. of Chicago.

It measures about 1 7/16" in diameter and is in good condition with minimal wear. There is a very small stain on the white side near the "O" in Loan. The yellow cloth tape has inches on one side only. It is in good condition with light fraying at the beginning. It pulls out and retracts well.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
