That's the birth date for this beauty I found today. Gotta love this beast. Chambers brand, built like a tank. Neat little griddle feature on the left under the cover that rotated up with a flip of the hand lever on the far left. There was a folding porcelainized top to cover it all up when not being used. Note the safety warning -- apparently a forerunner of all the idiotic warning labels we have today.

The owner had thoughtfully saved all of the documentation, including the factory inspection tag indicating the date it left the assembly line. At the right rear corner there was an unusual feature. By today's standards, anyway. The burner control knob referred to it as a "well" and it indeed was a recessed area with three fitted aluminum containers. I'm guessing that you filled the well with water then put your individual vegetables in the containers and into the well where they were heated by the water surrounding them. Anyone know if that's right?
