    Thankyou Erin! The General Society makes a wonderful home for the heaters and all the ideas they demonstrate. For @mattmia2 , some of the pictures from Wetstock show the heaters. Is that what you were asking?
    Yours, Larry

    Yes, I was just looking through. I wish i knew more of the story behind them. When I was a kid we had the original 1957 water heater in to the 80's that had the same sort of beautiful name badges as some in your collection. I think it was a republic.

    How the heck did you get them across the country? :)
    Good for you passing them along for generations to enjoy.

    Hi @Fred , Dan told me I could expect them to be there at least for the next 200 years. Not sure exactly how I'll keep track of that :p@hot_rod , I loaded them up into a PODS container, very securely tied down, and then helped unload them in New York. They traveled well! Unloading in busy Manhattan was interesting. :#

    Yours, Larry
