    First one is museum piece quality, bet thousands of those were scrapped over the years what a shame. Second one makes my back sore looking at it, but I bet it really cranks out the heat. Thanks for sharing.

    Love the first pix, what a fine piece of history. The others were fairly commen in the Denver market, mostly saw them in the older- 1920' developments around eastern Denver town. The largest I believe was almost 6' long it may have been longer. i just rember it took at least 5 guys to move that sucker into place after the homeowner had it sent out for sandblasting and powdercoating. Love thoses old ladies.

    First one might be a Bundy, but I've never seen a Bundy with those fancy sides or base. If it's marked A.A. Griffing, it's a Bundy.

    Second one is an Aetna Flue Window Radiator, from American Radiator Co.

    We recently worked in a house full of Italian Flue radiators and a church with Verona radiators in the sanctuary. American Radiator Co made both of these. I don't have pics though, will get some next time.

    With pieces like these still in use I cannot imagine why people would even think of using any other type of heating system!

    In the first pic, I'm also impressed by the carpet job.
