Help To Identify Old Radiator

canada Member Posts: 1

Can anyone identify the radiator in the attached photos?
(Manufacturer? Model?)
The building was constructed in 1896 and is located in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada.
I've already reached out to a company that restores old radiators and they've never seen this style, nor is it listed in any of the manufacturers specs they have for US radiators.

    Neat. I've seen ones rather like it, but I couldn't tell you the manufacturer. What do you need done to it?

    It looks like a hot water radiator, not steam. Just curious.

    It's some sort of "flue" radiator. Look at the area around the pipe connections at the bottom, you might find the name there.
