SurfriderO…
(1 item)

Aloha!!!

This may sound weird, but we dug up this item during a Surfrider beach clean on the north shore of Oahu. It looks like (thanks Wikipedia) it may be from the late 50s.

However I don't know WHAT it is. I was thinking a cooler at first as it is insulated. However it looks like it has plumbing, a tank, and a flushing handle on the bottom.. So an insulated Coke toilet!?

I figure someone must have come across one at some point in their lives...
It doesn't seem that Google has..!
I think it WILL be a flower pot soon though :-)

Mahalo!

    yep it's a soda fountain from late 1950's, it was used in diners or kitchenette, it was clamped on the counter, yours is missing the clamp and other parts like the cover, don't dump it, you can still use some parts to restore a same one
