Glendale, California Vacuum Cleaner Treasure Hunt

PHOTOS - Page Five

This next group of photos is of some of the stuff I got.






Two really cool Universal displays! These are made of reinforced sheet metal and weigh a ton! The one on the left is for an upright. I did not find the machine, so I have given this unit to one of the other guys. The one on the right is for the tank, and I did find a complete tank and all the attachments, even the caddy! Can hardly wait to clean this up and put it on display!


There’s a Hoover 102, then please note the Eureka Challenger (Model M) behind it. I found the machine and original bag but the handle was missing. Does anyone by any chance have a spare handle for this machine?! Then there’s a Kenmore and two Apexes. I hope to make one good one out of the two.


Another view of the Royal Standard with floor polisher. This is the second Royal polisher I have found! This one is polished aluminum and the other one is black wrinkle finish. Isn’t it the most bizarre thing!
