Ive been inspired by Andrew White’s latest terrific find. :D Anyone who has a column fan to share, post away! It’ll be fun to see all the neat models that pop up.

This is not mine but these where sold on craigslist about a year ago. I wish I could have got one but they where out of my price range. Nice Westy sidewinder column fans. He had 3 of them.

This is not what you are talking about, as it"s kind of a "Frankefan" I made up for my patio table. Worked out very well, and has soft lights in it!

Archival photos, Russ...







   No dots like you get zooming in a catalog page... luckily, they must have been printed on fine grain paper, glass negatives destroyed a hundred years ago...








 with the absence of 19-teens general catalogs after 1914, there's only brief mention in that period along with ceiling fan data, but not the twin column fans...... this is 1915
