    Hi All, Spent Thanksgiving in Nashua NH with family and of course I had to go check out some Antique stores. Found this old Prestone radiator watering can at one of the shops on Main St during there annual Christmas tree lighting festival Sat night with most businesses offering 15% off so I got this at a reasonable price, just another cool old item to sit next to one of my old gas pumps. Have fun collecting, I sure do!

      Thanks Brunswick, I'm not sure I call it good shape but I guess for its age, I know where there is one in near new condition hanging in an old Hardware store, NFS.

      Thanks fortapache, I actually have another one that sits on my shop porch that I have used to water flower pots. :)

      Nice find. I remember when these were used at local garages. NH is full of old stuff but you have to get off the beaten path. I still have family and friends in NH, VT and upstate NY. All of them are hoarders. I guess it runs in the family.
    8. EJW-54 EJW-54, 3 years ago
      Thanks fhrjr2 , those pickers on TV love the North East, lost of history and oldest collectibles, I hear ya " runs in the Family" my grandfather had a junk room upstairs that I snuck into all the time and a barn full of stuff, as a kid I loved looking through all his stuff, boy I miss those days, guess thats why I've been collecting most of my life. :0)
