Description

This table provides lists of neon light signs owned by the company Claude Neon Light, Fed Inc. in the French Settlement between 1933-1937. Those lists were updated every six month in order to control the signs and renew their permits.

This table is composed of two sheets:

  1. the first one provides a list of Claude neon light signs, mentioning their location, dimensions, advertising agencies, advertisers and/or brand name, etc. between 1929 and 1941
  2. the second one provides a list of neon light signs illegally exempted from taxation in the French Settlement during the period 1934-1937. This list was established by the Overseer of Taxes in order to rate those escaping signs.

This table was established after the following archival materials:

  • Claude Neon Light. Permis pour enseignes lumineuses. 1929-1941. Source: SMA (FC), U38-4-1114 (1031-1149).
  • Enseignes lumineuses non taxées. 1934-1936. Source: SMA (FC), U38-4-1109 (0436-0438)

Rapport du Service Finances et Contentieux N°489 à l'Ingénieur en Chef et au Directeur des Services Municipaux. Shanghai, 21 mai 1937. Source: SMA (FC), U38-4-1109 (0486-0494).  

J'ai fait procédé à un relevé des enseignes lumineuses qui échappent actuellement à la taxe. Je vous serais très obligé de donner des isntructions au Service des Permis pour qu'il nous adresse avant le 30 juin prochain un état des superficies et de la portée en saillie de ces enseignes aux fins d'imposition dans le plus bref délai.
