The Online Gallery of the British Library offers this Rising Sun ad for a London distributor of the product:

Google Street View spots the fading Rising Sun ad on the side of 5010 N. Broadway, St. Louis, MO in Sept of 2014. Google Picasa was used to reveal as much color as possible.

This landmark is featured by Margaret on "the Painted Ad, A Blog About Vintage Wall Signs."
