Edison battery utility motors on 288. Just saw a picture of one not to long ago. Check out the showroom in the start of this Chicago supply catalog. :up:

Are any of those battery motors still in existence today? I noticed that the more expensive motor only had 3 batteries. The cheaper motor had 4 batteries. Must of been older technology at the time.

That is funny. I am thinking that the corresponding advertisements are in vertical rows. Then my reading would be correct. What you are saying is that the advertisements read horizontally.
