Southern California barber shop.

That fan has plumbing such that water could be circulated through coils for either heated or chilled water modulated breezes.

If Kim posted it that must be an Emerson. He has an Emerson fetish. Is that Mr. Meston?

If Kim were as much of a GE guy as he claims to be he would dress like the gentlemen in the Foss Fan Foto.  How about that Kim?  Show up at Fanfair in antique GE garb?
And you could show up in your fabulous custom blingmobile-

Great photos, Tom. The fan in that barber shop looks like an Astatic D104 microphone.

Steve, that car looks like one Elvis might've had.

Right you are Jim. 

There are some of the iron lungs that had a fan mount
incorporated.  One of the links I lost to the cloud.

The thoroughly modern office.  R&M fan, Edison Dictaphone and player.  I don't recognize the typewriter.  What is it Steve?

This kingsize photo is so much better Tom.  I can see details.  Underwood No.5 and this one dates to between 1907 or 1908 and early 1922.  A real expert on Underwoods might be able to narrow it down more and I could with more views of the typewriter.  The Underwood No.5 was probably the most common typewriter in use from c.1910 and into the 1930s or later.
Here's a 1912 model that was on ebay last year.

I played with the contrast a bit and can now read the year on the calendar.

1929.

Since the R&M badge looks c1920, maybe not so modern after all.

Isn't the fan an R&M 3500?  Late 20s maybe?

Yes, it looks like a 3500.  The one in the galleries is dated 1920.

Don't tell me we are promoting incorrect info ...

The 3500 first shows up in ads in 1920. That's what I was using when I dated mine in the gallery. Here is the initial ad, which states from Electrical Merchandizing, March 1920.

Thanks Lewis, that is good information to know.  The cage badge is different from most of the R&M fans of the later teens and into the mid 20s or later so that's why I was thinking later than the fan actually is.

Hatin'?  If you look at the thread, you will see I posted my box fans.  Not your typical box fans, but "in a box" nonetheless.

As Colbert would say, "The public has spoken"

18 pages and >110K hits and still progressing will not be beaten any time soon.

Now ya'll come back often, we need to get those numbers up ...

The boardroom pic. Wonder what the buckets on the floor are for. One appears to have something in it but might be a shadow. Love the old period pics myself, fans or no fans.
