This was my Grandfather's fan, my brother salvaged after our father passed.  Any info?

Anything Crocker-Wheeler is desirable!  That being a 500V model is interesting. That DC voltage was used in railway for sure; and probably other applications in industry.

Hold onto it if you can. Family heirlooms are tricky things.Once it's gone ... you can't get it back and all your left with is empty memory.

The New York on the tag dates it to pre-1894. The 500V motors were used near electric railway tracks.
