Another from my High Desert shopping expedition. This is a leaf from the Saturday Evening Post dated June 26th, 1926. The page displayed is an advertisement for a GE Electric fans. The fan pictured is a 9" oscillating fan which sold for $12.50 east of the Rockies. Unfortunate for those of us in the west.
Noting that they made motors for AC and DC power supplies. I believe New York City still had a DC power supply in the early 1930s. This was when the brass bladed fans were on their way out. Word to the wise is to snag the brass bladed fans when they are at a good price.
It came with a nice beat up old frame. I have been on the lookout for vintage frames although I need empty ones.
PS that is my Dad and Uncle in the photo underneath.
