I picked up this 1930 Emerson Jr about a year ago, disassembled and cleaned it up, then got sidetracked with other fans.  Now I'm finally getting around to reassembling.  I took lots of pictures along the way, labeling parts, etc (i'm challenged that way :D).  Anyway, now I've got almost all together and have a couple questions.  The first question is more historical versus aesthetics, the second basic wiring.  
When I got the fan it had a round rubber coated electrical cord, cracked.  Replacing it but undecided.  Leaning toward sticking with a rubber coated cord but but, historically, would that be accurate?  I've done a lot of fans with the interwoven wire, some with the conductors within a single fabric sheath, and those all look good but this one I want to keep as close as I can to the way it was off the shelf.

Regarding wiring, the connections to the switch were an absolute mess when I tore into it with only one two wires connected.  I suppose it should be entirely clear to me since it's a two wire single speed switch but, alas, it's not.  Any wiring diagram for the switch?  

Pictures of the fan and of the switch follow.  Thanks for any response!

You hot wire ties into and then off of the switch. Neutral does not attach to switch but goes direct to motor. Use the twisted cloth wire. Great fan btw. 8”?

Original cord and plug on Emerson 28646 and used for quite a few years c.1920s.  Your Jr. may be identical.

The power wire has been replaced looks to be in the 50's.

Dave, On the 1931 B Jr. that I restored, I used the cloth on both power and head wire.
