Old appliances

Recommended Posts

While inspecting yesterday I came across an old water heater. The woman was trying to sell everything in the house and I was wondering if there is a market for stuff like this. And what is this other device for? I could only Think of a hat stretcher or some kind of medieval torture device. The dome shaped part spreads out as you turn the handle. I did not plug it in, but I imagine it heats up.

I worked on the set of the HBO show "Deadwood", the costumer had a device similar to that for sizing hats. Apparently, quite common in the old days.

Here are some pics of a water heater, natural gas fired, seen here in Pasadena, CA at Heritage Square, a place dedicated to preserving some of our earliest homes.

I'm picturing that thing on its side with wheels on it, with Robert's little water heater for a smoke stack. [:)]
