Yeah, they were smilers back in 1918-19, not so in the '32 Navy Board photo.

I'd like to think there're a few survivors. Maybe even in some AFCA members' collections. Usually, in these old photos the fan wasn't the subject, so even in a large
photo the image isn't very big and makes ID'ing the fans difficult to impossible.

That small vorty is kinda hard to see in the bank photo, a light image against a light background.

Those combo lights were an early attempt at "daylight" lighting.  Antique Sockets website forum has been down quite a while, but were discussed there.

The guys down in the bowels who did the actual printing had to make do with some "Deluxe" CFs

The Acme was a rebadged Jandus for Sears.

Speaking of different colors and plated finishes, this is one pretty Jandus. I don't know if the color combination is all original but the paint and striping do look original. I think the Jandus came with and without striping. Mine has the striping on a black motor/base.

Those Emersons don't look like the usual black. Maybe an optional or special color from the factory?

You mean the Bevo Mill picture? That's all the info I could find, except that the location is possibly in St. Louis, which would of course be appropriate. I think I read that Emerson would paint a badge to match the fan color at customer request, but, except for possibly a Navy fan I didn't know about other colors than black either.

I wish the image were larger.

Mike

Mike,
Take a look at the 1934 Emerson catalog, p. 20 for instance for special finishes.

http://www.fancollectors.org/Emerson1/Images/ads/Emerson%20Fans%201934.pdf

Other years may have offered similar optional finishes.

Kinda hard to tell in a b&w photo what they are, Steve. French Gray? Old Ivory? The '34 catalog lists a pretty fair range of colors. I'd sure like to place an order for at least one example of each!
