Radiator Pictures

Okay, I'm going to try again. I could not get images to upload so I've started a flickr account which can be viewed at: <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/radiatorranger">www.flickr.com/photos/radiatorranger</a>.

Sorry for the delay in getting these posted. I hope this works!

    Yeah, that is what I identified it as from Dan's EDR book. I've seen the same Aetna design a few sizes bigger online and was really happy to find this one. I've seen houses full of ornate, Rococo radiators, I wonder if there were houses full of these in different sizes too? One friend said it looked like a cathedral with the decoration on every surface. I'm pleased to work with such a well designed and manufactured radiators - the hard work is mostly done by the time I get to them though even the little ones weigh more than a little.

    Thanks for sharing Cast Iron Maven :-)

    It's not so much a case of "You got what you paid for", as it is a matter of "You DIDN'T get what you DIDN'T pay for, and you're NOT going to get what you thought you were in the way of comfort". Borrowed from Heatboy.

    I love the purple people heater and the same style red one.  Reminds me of aluminum heat sinks.
