Default Spare tire covers with advertising

Years ago when I first got into the Model A hobby and joined the clubs, I recalled that many of the Model A's then had original advertising spare tire covers on them. They were typically canvas that had the advertising painted on them. One club member had an advertisement for a Rodeo in Wyoming. The inventor of the "A Ford-able" valve cover oil filter had a neat one also that said something like " See Zepp".

I haven't seen too many of these covers around now in sometime. What happened to them all? Who still has one and are they still used on your Model A? Can you please share pictures of what you have or any pictures of what you have seen please.

In doing some more research on the spare tire covers I came across this catalog being sold on EBay currently from a Clifton Manufacturing Co. of Waco, Tx that was a manufacturer of these spare tire covers back in the day. Lots of neat designs being sold.

The spare tire covers with designs have made a come back on many of the modern Jeepís
