this is for a steam system, I measured ~17" high, ~13" wide, and as you can see in the pic it's 5 tubes with 10 sections. Kind of a hoss from other radiators I've seen. Does someone have an archived cut sheet for this bulldog?

side note, see the asbestos insulation on the gas line. Maybe someone was worried it would condense if it got too cold?

    That's a Triton window radiator, made by U.S. Radiator Co. 4.75 square feet per section, for a total of 47.5. This is probably in Dan's book "E.D.R.".

    BTW, the air vent is installed in the wrong place. Looks like there is a boss low on the center column that was meant for a steam air vent.

    Wouldn't be the first time we've seen the results of an install crew who doesn't bother to read the instructions........ :s
