 Intriguing. :shock:  Mounting block looks like a design borrowed from the Diehl Rail car wall mount fans from 25 years earlier. The color combination, the grille in front of the blades , and the yoke suspension of the motor look strikingly like forerunners in design , of the Vornado fan manufactured by company of the same name , founded after WW2 in Wichita KS by O.A. Sutton.We have several keen historians in the club & hopefully they can chime in as to whether a connection  between this fan and the Vornado legend in Wichita is history or just my imagination. Great piece of history regardless ,  and I've never seen one of those in 50 years of chasing fans. :up:
