Default Old water heater

Had a couple jobs with my Master today and this gem was sitting on the work bench. One of our customers bought an old house and it was still part of the system. The scary part is it vented into a block wall, no chimney!

I’m thinking research, some things are better valued higher when not F’d with. My thought is hang it on the wall and the door on a plaque?

I have picked up a number of them over the years from crawl spaces...... and cleaned them up ......


then I found out about E-bay and have bought a few off of that site

they are all works of art as far as I am concerned and I have them all
sitting in my store front window on display.....


E-bay has some great deals on them and I am wanting to get my hands on '
a Ruud unit some day from about 1900 vintage.....
