Do you all agree this is a good start?

This Jan. to June 1892 Western Electrician link posted in the following post should have Emerson Meston highlights that will eventually pop up at the bottom of the page.  If you click on the highlight of your choice a page should pop up with 92 season Emerson Meston related advertisements and information for most part. The pages can be enlarged with the enlargement feature.

I am sorry Steve and Bill, I don't agree.  I may be in a minority, but I don't agree. The image below dates Feb. of 92.  Why would a tripod Meston be shown in Feb. of 92 when it was not introduced until 93? Why can't I find one shread of evidence in ANY of the 92 legit electrical books to support a new improved Meston fan motor with cone base?
