1897 Pumping Aermotor
Aermotor Company
Chicago, Illinois
Manufactured from 1890 to 1897


This was the second model of windmill made by this fine company.
This was the only model to have a "bell" shaped hub and flat spoke arms.
Note the wooden dowels that "sealed" oiling holes in the main casting.
Look closely to see the two pronunciation dots above the "E" in Aermotor.
The color of the paint used on these models was black.
