Wall Dog Signatures – Frank Meinhart
Check out my home page for a great video of contemporary Walldogs. Do you think these guys are insurable? As I sought out new signs I noticed signatures in the bottom right corner of a few. A little research unveiled one Frank Meinhart who not only painted signs but was a well known Montana wildlife artist, even exhibiting at the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C.. Northwest Digital Archives has a comprehensive bio of Frank as well as photos of his various signs. The Library of the University of Michigan references Dry Climate Cigars made by the Solis Cigar Company which was located in Denver. They are advertised as “The Luxury of Life” in one magazine. One Dry Climate Cigar sign has been photographed on a wall in Denver in addition to the one in Butte. No more have turned up in my research. Others, anyone?
