Dating American Radiator Co Ideal Boiler

Hi All,

I'd love your help determining the date of an American Radiator Co Ideal boiler, model W-22-6 (pictures attached). I've found catalogs from 1906 and 1910 that list it, although I'm not finding much prior to that.

The house was built in 1898 and remodeled in the 1910s. I'm trying to determine if the boiler was original or added when the house was remodeled.

Thanks for any help you might have!

    I'd live to see it but I'm not getting the picture.

    Huh. I don't know why they aren't showing up. I've tried to attach them to the post again, and in this comment. Any luck of those coming through?

    Like you, I found that exact boiler in a book titled "The Ideal Fitter" copyright 1925 but it does not indicate any way to tell the age.
