NORTH STAR OIL LOGO
IN BUSINESS FROM 1928-1961
I have added the color, we know it was blue, not sure if this dark a blue.
THEIR HEAD OFFICE WAS IN WINNIPEG UNTIL 1962, THEN THEY CHANGED THEIR NAME TO NORTH STAR OIL DIVISION OF SHELL OIL COMPANY IN 1962, OFFICES MOVED TO TORONTO ON.
THEN IT BECAME SHELL CANADA LTD IN 1963
THE REFINERY FOR NORTH STAR OIL WAS IN BRANDON MB.
IT IS VERY HARD TO LOCATE THIS LOGO ANYMORE.
SO INCLUDED IT HERE FOR OTHERS TO SEE.
