Looking to find out a little bit more about this Kalamazoo "Direct to You" stove/oven. I believe it is from the 1930's or 40's. It has been in the same house in the Baltimore/Washington area since it was in use probably 25-30 years ago. Anyone interested in providing some more information, please let me know!

    This appears to be the Presidential model cookstove, produced by the Kalamazoo Stove Co (in Kalamazoo, Michigan.) I have pictures of this model in their catalogs from 1932-1936, if you would like me to email them to you. Or, you can search on Ebay or Google images, that's where I found the photos.

    the gauge on the front appears to show a 1922 patent date. Here is a link to a 1934 catalog:
