Picked up this cooler in Norther IL on a pic run. It's a cut off Westinghouse Jr. with a few modifications. The date stamp is TN-41-5. I think it may be one of the Jr.'s that was cut off and sent over sea's to the troops in WWII for moral boost. The sawed off legs were done very nicely, the cap catcher was removed and lid handle as well (for easy stacking during transport). A latch was put in place instead of handle and the drain was rerouted to the side where the cap catcher should be. The lid still has origional raised letters as well, though its seen better days. I'm gonna try my hardest to salvage that lid on restore. I would love opinions and other info about this cooler if you have any. FYI, it was painted over sometime and hs already been taken apart for restore, so keeping it "origional" ain't gonn happen. That went out the window when someone cut the legs off!
