Hi All,
I would like help to identify and date my ceiling fans.

We believe they came from a butter factory and were installed in the 1930's but we are really only guessing.
Any information on manufacturer or manufacture date would be greatly appreciated.

One now works the only problem seems to be they were jambed up with mud wasp nests.
They are to be used in the machinery shed in a historic village.

I can’t help you to identify them, but be aware that they’re 50 hz motors. And 240v.

Yep thats standard through out Australia. Except in the very earliest of power installations and some private power supplies. The butter factory actually supplied steam driven 3 phase alternator power for the whole town until the 1950's when government supplied power arrived.

I really was sure somebody would be able to provide information on these fans. Perhaps I should see if there is a Portslade Historical Group. They may have details of the factory from the past.
