THEODORE P. HEINEMANN, OF CONNERSVILLE, INDIANA, ASSIGNOR OF ONE-HALF TO FRANCIS T. ROOTS, OF SAME PLACE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 661,266, dated November 6, 1900.
Application filed November 27,1899. Serial No. 788,267. (No model.)
To (LZZ whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, THEODORE P. HEINE- MANN, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Connersville, in the county of Fayette and State of Indiana, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Triple Signs, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to improvements in triple signs.
The object of my invention is a sign of the kind known as triple signs which is made of separable parts, which can be packed in a shape convenient for handling and shipping and can be put together readily to form the signs, and is designed especially for large signs, such as are attached to the fronts of business-houses, which must be of a strong construction.
Referring to the accompanying drawings, in which like parts are indicated by similar reference-letters wherever they occur in the views, Figure l is a view in perspective of a sign embodying my invention. Fig. 2 is an enlarged detail view in perspective of one of the angle-pieces that compose the sign, the bottom and top pieces of the frame to which the angle-pieces are attached being shown broken 01f.
Referring to the parts, the frame of the sign consists of side pieces a and a, between which are secured the top and the bottom pieces (62 and (4 respectively. Angle-pieces B, formed, preferably, of metal, with arms I) and b at substantially a right angle to each other, are secured at one end to top piece a of the frame and at the other end to bottom The arms 1) form the background i other side are the letters that are seen from the right side. It is obvious that these angle-pieces may be done up in a package of a shape convenient for handling and shipping and that the recipient can attach them readily to a frame or to the side of a building for forming a triple sign and that by reason of the simplicity of construction the sign is strong and durable.
What I claim is- 1. In a triple sign the combination of a frame, and angle-pieces secured to the frame one series of the arms of which form the background and the other series of arms of which form the transverse members of the sign, substantially as shown and described.
2. The hereinbefore-described angle-pieces with arms at substantially a right angle to each other one series of arms of which is to form the background of a triple sign and the other series of arms of which is to form the transverse members of the sign, substantially as shown and described.
THEODORE P. HEINEMANN.
