This is the big fan my new friend Robert was nice enough to bring down from N. Carolina. I wonder what size motor I should use, and what size motor Pulley? The blade pulley is 15".

That is a fine fan!There used to be an old converted warehouse over on Navigation directly across from Folgers Coffee called The Salvage Center Of Houston. When I was a kid, they had big belt drives hanging from the ceiling & large pedestal circulators. A fan just like this was mounted on top of the cashiers booth.

depends on the pulley, and fan speed, I would think you would want to run it slow.. 1/3 horsepower at 1725 would be fine.
