Found this cool Dayton floor fan yesterday at an estate sale.  Runs awesome on the single speed from the inline cord switch.  I love the looks of the motor housing with those fins!

That motor is probably a Redmond Motor, and that fan is probably 1950s or 1960s vintage, Redmond made motors like that for fans like that and hassocks as well, clear up until the late 1970s when Redmond went out of buisiness.
That fan has a very neat art deco look to the cage.

Thinking it's probably earlier than the mid 50s. The cage badge says "Chicago 6", which they started to get rid of those postal codes and go over to the modern zip codes in the mid 50s.

Actually the modern zip code system came into being in the 1960s.

That motor with the heat dissipating fins is super cool, I have always heard Redmond motors had a bad rep - they were used in later Fresh'nd Aire fans & are called "fireballs"
