I really like the Sturtevant. I had read of their smaller fans but had never seen one till now. It doesn't say in the article, but the Iceberg sold for $7.50 and you'd get 10 hours of breeze(after you bought the $13.50 battery you needed) Ouch..

Psssst...Westinghouse had about 90 bazillion gyro related patents....and I tink they even beat G.E. to the gun for the first gyro patent after the Jandus gyro. Just go to Google patents and put in ...."Westinghouse revolving fan". I tink that will pop up a few Westy gyros...maybe some others like Emersons. :clap: Don't let Haroldson of Minnisoda have all the fun in cyber space! :tumbs

and then I believe either GE sold all their patents for their gyro to Westy or maybe it was the other way around?

Hey Russ...............

I'm concerned about Loren.  It appears from the picture he has been working out too much again.  Loren is becoming a Chick Magnet and I'm afraid it will cause problems with his marriage!

I'd better put something fan related or this thread might get killed.  Here's the end of DL Bates and brother.. this was the same year as the Dayton flood. However, it appears they did not suffer major damage,. just flooding on the lower level and most of the stock got moved upstairs safely, but they apparently were on rocky ground anyway according to this......

Russ, I'm not sure what's in that bowl. The secret is to swallow first and then look if you feel a need to..

 

Terry, note all those Liberty street addresses in NYC. One showroom of fans after another. A fan collectors heaven if we could see it today as it was back then.
