We picked this up in Brimfield , MA (a 4 hour drive away)a couple of years ago. Oddly enough, we got it from a dealer that lives about 15 minutes from my house! This is a Wind Intensity Meter made for the US Navy by Friez, of Baltimore, MD in 1936. I imagine it mounted on a ship. It's a direct drive from the cups to the meter, so maybe it mounted on a flight deck, or somewhere else not too far from where it was read. I really like military items, and though the gauge no longer works, it looks great in out garden, turning in the wind! I posted a pic of the whole garden, the meter is right of center. I love the outdoors in the summertime!!
