  2. What are you showing us TA
  3. I wonder how it attached to the bracket?
  4. Is the swivel part threaded inside?
  5. Transportation road was fun. I also remember standing in a lot of lineups waiting to get into the pavilions.
  6. I think a new cord is a must, looks like someone patched on an old lamp cord.
  7. I look forward to seeing the other items that you have found.
  8. Agh did all the heavy lifting on this one. It should look great all cleaned up!

  10. Well done agh!
  11. That's definitely the same name plate, knob & placement. Only difference is the model #
  12. Can you read any of the info on the plate under the switch. Is there a patent no.?
  13. If you do a google image search for "vintage safety gas can" you will see similar ones.
  14. It's a gas can designed to prevent explosions.
  15. Happy Easter! Are the Christmas cards for the 2015 season? :-)
  16. Thanks Jewels!
  17. Great cabinet!
  18. Yes I'm sure there is much more to it. Why this diner? Who are the two men, patrons, owners? What about the young man behind the counter, is he a recent immigrant? What is happening in the kitchen...
  19. Yes TA Canadian census records do contain info on occupation. The husband of my Grandfathers cousin, who I think (speculation on my part) this photo may have belonged to did work for the railway. As...
  20. Thanks for the love on this photo Sis, TA & filmnet.
  21. Could be Sis..lol
  22. Could be insect traps. As for it being a railcar, it seems to have too high of a ceiling for one of that era. But without an outside view all we can do is speculate.
  23. All they need is some cans of hairspray!

  25. Thanks for the love DrFluffy & Radegunder .
  26. Great post Sis, kinda reminds me of these two galls http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/40169-half-moon-with-steps-for-junkman
  27. It must have cost a lot to ship his empty jugs all the way from Utica.
  28. Thanks for the kind words Sis! Phil did a wonderful job as always!
  29. After some research, I believe the necklace may be made by Schoffel & Co. & was made in the 50's or 60's. Thanks Phil for giving this bling some bling!!
  30. Looks like a very nice trunk, very expensive in it's day. One of our residents trunk experts will be along to give you some more info.
  31. bigger photos would help in the ID
  32. She ran out of the auction yelling "START THE CAR, START THE CAR"!!!

  40. Very appropriate. Lest we Forget!!
  41. Here in Canada it's Remembrance Day, & we follow the same traditions as to time & date. We went to a local service, there was only three WWII veterans able to attend. It was a full house though, wh...
  42. No I was just wrong again, I guess!
  43. My thrifty wife tells me that we only paid $22 for it.
  44. LOL, I don't think it would look too good on me!
  45. My wife thinks your house is beautiful & would like you to come decorate ours!
  46. Morning Phil, I was hoping you would have some input on this, I posted because of the Sherman pieces that you have been posting. I was hoping that it might be made of Swarovski crystals. I think we ...
