Re: Exhibit Supply Co. Imperial Crane

The NEW Exhibit Supply Digger was introduced in 1936.

That is the 1936 Exhibit Supply catalog. Best photo I have. (from an old auction)
There is the New Imperial on the cover.

I'm looking for this, if someone has one they will part with.

Re: Exhibit Supply Co. Imperial Crane

Hi all, The pictures below are from my collection - the IMPERIAL is a stunning art-Deco machine. If you look carefully at Paul's machine, you will notice there are two signs on the left and right of the ships bow. They are, on the left, all the patents for the machine and on the right instructions....

Re: Novelty Merchantman Crane

The backgrounds I've seen were hand painted. Possibly some creative license was exercised.

Re: Exhibit Supply Co. Imperial Crane

The Imperial has the front of the ship but not the casting of the ships bridge behind it.

Re: Exhibit Supply Co. Imperial Crane

Hi
It's NOT a Merchantman but a more rare crane made at the same time called IMPERIAL. Though not easily seen in the photos, the name is on the cast emblem on the front near the bottom.

Re: Novelty Merchantman Crane

There were 2 styles of posters used as background.

One was a night scene the other a day scene
