So I’ve picked up this fan for inside and outside use, but need some help understandIng what era the fan is from (guessing 60’s) as well as how to replace the pull chain. Fan operates if I plug it in, but would like to get the pull chain back operational as I’m thinking the fan may have multiple speeds. 
For some reason I can’t get photos to it load with the correct orientation. Sorry about that.

Looks like a 40s - 50s model. Tons of companies made circulators, buying the parts from different vendors & assembling them in their shop.

Thanks. 
Where should I look to get a replacement?  The chain is completely gone.

Your motor tag lists a single RPM.  Unless you have a speed coil inside the rear motor housing it has a high probability of being a one speed(High)circulator.  Your switch is a basic on and off switch.  You could replace it with a modern toggle or pull chain switch.

I see that, for some reason it didn’t occur to me that it would mean single speed. . Thank you for the clarification. Much appreciated.

This is Sloan's base, note the trim ring and the three embossed line decorations, and what looks like factory green enamel. I've found close, but nothing definitive to date.

Since it seems yours is a single speed motor, you can get a simple ON/OFF pull chain switch at Lowe's or Home Depot or any good electrical supply place.

That's a beast of a fan, as well. Very nice!
