Can anyone throw out a number on this rad? It's 48 sections, about 15" tall, 3 1/2" wide. 48 sections gives it about 8 feet. Thanks for any help.

    Guestimate

    1/2 - 3/5 sq.ft. per section.

    Will do my best to find similar tomorrow when proper books are available.

    Rad of that design will have somewhat higher ouput per sq.ft. EDR than typical.

    Struck out Gary. Nothing truly similar in EDR or any of my other books.

    Closest thing I could find is the "Beaver" Pressed Steel Radiator in EDR. Single column design similar to this. 14" high x 4" wide = 1 sq.ft. per section.

    Will revise my guestimate to ¾ to 1 sq.ft. per section.

    I can't quite make out the mfgr. Is it H. L. Prine Co.?
