The contractor sent me pictures of this beauty. The phone number on the thermometer is "Fruitvale 4553".

    I think my biggest question might be about the breech behind it that looks to have an adapter on it that isn't nearly that old.

    Looks like that is a very old Bryant with gravity flow.

    Planned obsolescence wasn't a thing when that Bryant was made.
