In my travels with my job I came across an abandoned home with this in the yard. I talked to the neighbor who said it was at least pre 1960s, pretty cool.

    Was there a lower vent anywhere? Looks like all it needs is a Rutland gasket.

    Did you keep it? If its abandoned you should have grabbed it up and done a full restore.

    I did not keep it. Any Bay Area eggers interested DM me for the address if you’re interested.

    It seemed to be in good shape, the man who used it has passed on, but the neighbor said he rarely used it.

    In case this relic is salvaged here are a few I have done.  Fun project and the price is right.

    That is cool.  Friend of mine spotted something like this over in Marrakesh a few years ago.
