1921 estimate for heating

A friend had found this estimate in the eveas of his attics home and also found a bunch of old plumbing catalogs Nason and a few other they where awesome but i had to at least post this estimate for materal from 1921 there 30 raditors and air vents on the ticket and he was given a choice between a 1475edr burnham for 384 bucks or a smaller ideal 6 section 1350 edr for a wooping 386.25 .Image that edr of all the rads where717.5 edr and all that stuff for 912bucks ,i don't think you could even buy 1/4 of the rads for that price ,hope all enjoy peace and good luck clammy


  • Wow

    That`s awesome clammy, at a scrap iron dealer here that price may get a guy three rads.
    You say he found catalogs too?, perhaps there may be something Dan would be interested-in.
    I`m still looking for those "long-lost" rolls of cash!
