    This original advertising for the Wm. R. White "Vibrating Gate" was gifted to me by a friend and fellow collector. It is advertising for the Salesman Sample Gate in my collection. The last photo is a model of a manually operated gate that sold at auction a few years ago. Unfortunately I didn't learn of the auction until after the fact.

    Wr. White was the first to manufacture metallic gates.

      On my phone, but trying to read the vibrating gate pamphlet. Fascinating story. Didn't get to why its a vibrating gate though...

      thanks for the loves everyone. dav2no1 - I haven't figured out the vibrating gate thing either. Clever advertising? It got our attention.

      I found it fascinating how many loans he got from friends and family and other people. Just to accomplish his goal and get patents.

      Mr White's story is a rags to riches. Wish there was room to include his story.

      dav2no1 - found a brief bio for Wm. R. White. See Wm. R. White - Rags to Riches.
