    Very cool. The window seat radiator certainly had a fresh outside air intake with louver behind it and the fin shape allowed the air to warm when flowing over. I wonder whether there is a vent still there?

    Looks like it's designed to pull from the bottom to me?

    That second picture is a Niagara window seat radiator. I have one in my home. There is no vent. It is just designed to pull air from the floor level.

    Correct. Bottom and in the back. I’ve seen some scans of old ones when coal was king.

    What are those fins on the bottom back wall though? Look a like louvers to me.
  • Daniel_3Daniel_3 Member Posts: 543
    Maybe that’s something else though.

    Yes, That's the old baseboard, behind the radiator. Those aren't louvers. That is the profile of the baseboard.

    Does anyone know the manufacturer? I would guess that it was a company in California or somewhere else out West. Unless I somehow missed them, I don't believe that I have ever seen anything like those, even in E.D.R.

    OMG does that mean that EDR is really "Almost EDR"? :*

    The EDR's for the second picture (Niagara window seat Radiator) are listed on the attachment I posted (under the pictures of my Niagara)

    Gotcha. Ventilating Box bases did exist and were installed beneath tall rads and short ones. I do remember seeing a setup behind your Niagra type. Hence, the reason I pointed that out.

    Nonetheless those are really nice rads!

    I was referring to Dan's book "EDR (Every Damn Radiator"). And trying to humorously point out that, after seeing these radiators, it is apparent that the book doesn't have EVERY Damn Radiator.
    Sorry if the humor was not evident.
