Can anyone help identify this radiator?

Can anyone help identify the manufacturer of this radiator?  It is in an old church that was converted from steam to hot water in 2009.  The church tells me it's Burnham, but Burnham tells me it's not theirs. 



Please Help!



Thanks!

    It looks to me like a Burnham or Governale baseray installed back side out from the wall. also known as backwards. do you have a clearer photo?

    Thanks!

    It's starting to look like you're right about the backwards Burnham.  I just need to get out there and check if the "trademark" oval openings are on the "back" of this radiator.



    If that is the case - is there any good reason the installing contractor may have installed these backwards?  Are there any benefits to that? Are there negatives?  I would think it would have to hurt performance.  Any idea by how much it would affect the performance?

    No good reason to have it backwards

    It would slow the covection of the heat way down. Make sure you have towels and a wet vac on hand with a very good hand cart when you go to spin it around.
