The first-ever AFP Electric Fan Exposition was a wonderful fan meet!

 A few photos ...

Eric Laird, proud owner of a found-in-the-wild Century S4 oscillator, has found his way into picking great fans.

Bill Fanum, left, aids Les Dobbins with his Vortalex pedestal fan.  It was an easy fix. Les was one happy fan collector.

Somebody brought a brilliant Freshy for display.  The original chrome plating was outstanding.

Where other than Hickory, N.C. will you see such a mint collection of bipolar fans and motors?

Really like the thermometer!  Is that Antique Fan Parts created?

I bet the temperature goes up when the Neon is turned on...

It's good to see Carlton, and Jeter looking like they're doing work!

Thank you, once again Jeff, for the great pictures!

John,That thermometer used to read Wards Battety Service, I had the face recreated by a graphics company.  Here is another original neon that a very dear friend of mine created.
