Calling All Heating Historians! Original Radiator Brochures Wanted!

Hi everyone,

I'm in need of some heating history information today and would really appreciate some help!

I work from a British cast iron radiator company called Castrads and am conducting some research on the history of cast iron radiators, with special focus on the late 1800s in America for some articles we're hoping to write. I recently visited The General Society of Mechanics & Tradesmen in New York and found heaps of amazing information, though I've still got a few dots to connect.

If anyone has any old pdfs or physical copies of catalogues / brochures from The American Radiator Company or their predecessors (The Michigan Radiator Company & Iron Manufacturing Company, The Detroit Radiator Company or Pierce Steam Heating) or any other 19th century radiator manufacturers, please let me know! Anything before 1897 would be especially useful as I really have nothing before this point, though any information will be welcomed with open arms.

All the best
