We used to make things in this country. #214: J.C. Adams Co. Ltd., (JACO), Toronto, Ontario

A "Servisignal" bell manufactured by the J.C. Adams Co. (JACO) of Rexdale Boulevard, Toronto.  The bell is electrically powered, but triggered when a car runs over a pressurized rubber hose.  From a day when this was a signal for "full service" when you pulled into a gas station.

This product appears to have been made under license in Canada by the J.C. Adams Company, which was also the Canadian distributor for Fram filters in the 40's and 50's.
