Johnson baby powder came into being 2 years before the snap(according to the photo date provided). Do notice the lamp cord hanger balls(helps support photo date). Yup... you got it right...those shiney choppers may predate the 20th. Which one of you CF nuts can them nail em first? :wondering: The building is located in....naaa...I already gave a hint.

Psssst...do notice there is a table fan in another room. Ooooh the pain...why oh why did they have to hide it. :cry:

I think you've already seen it... you know that picture you had of the white Towle/Paragon on a desk? I think you should post it again... :tumbs

Good for you Sherlock. :up: There is little doubt in my mind that table fan is from Lancaster. Notice the space from the hub to the wing. Bet they're all juiced on DC.

So that photo really is the room that's visible through the window on the far right in your first picture? That's the first thing I thought of when I saw it, something just 'clicked'. :wondering:

No. The second photo I posted has nothing to do with the first photo. The table fan I am refering to in the first photo is in the second room from the right of the photo. Through the window you can see a table fan on top of a cabinet. The wings appear to be narrow where they join to the hub. I have strong IMPRESSION it is a Towle or Paragon. Not sure if Paragon was around in 95? Was Towle first? :wondering:

Psssst...table fan could also be a Conduit. :up:

Forget that... I was looking at the desks and though they looked identical but I just realized there isn't a window to its right in the Johnson & Johnson pic. :wondering: :hammer:

Russ,

It's always great when you post these fan quizzes. 

After going through most of my research material from 1890-1902 I'm still stumped on the CF's in the first picture.  They have a decorative pressed metal band similar o Diehl and Western Electric although the top mount blades throw everything off.

The 2nd photo is great. After adjusting the photo the fan is most likely a Paragon.  Notice the cast "ear " on the side of the motor and the snout of the motor is also like Paragon.  There was a possibility of the fan being a Dielh also. Also, when I adjusted the photo the two calendars became more apparent above the window and fan.

Adjusted photo:



Close-up:



1897 Paragon:



1901 Diehl:

I don't think your the only one Nick. Thanks for sharing the great illustrations. Not sure of how long Paragon was in town? Or Towle? Maybe Loren knows? :wondering:

I wasn't going to say it at first but I guess I will... It looks to me like the motor/blade assembly is somehow just mounted upside down (but of course, WHY???) and it's actually an "ordinary" CF that we're looking at. I do recognize the shell brackets and the motor looks really familiar.

Thank you. :up: If your on target, and I bet you are....there is little doubt in MY mind what that visible table fan is in the other room.  The king of baby powder had some of the best buzzes on the block. :D Ya...we all got pack this photo away for safe keeping. :clap:

Paul, actually you're right on the money!  I finally found this 1898 article though they are column fans the motor, blades, and blade bracket design is spot on.

I was stumped because I couldn't find the exact blade shape & blade bracket design with them installed above the motor.

thanks steve for posting the scan.....i love the electrolier shown on that fan.... simple yet effective.

btw, in addition to this fan, 'shell' brackets very similar to those were also made by peerless/colonial and i seem to think another company but i cant recall who at this moment......

Yep - there were actually several companies that made column mounted fans like that back then. The AB Gyro column fans are quite a treat to see. Fanimation also makes modern column mount fans which you can buy anytime.
