1921. I think the button on the side releases the mechanism, allowing a
telescopic stick to be extended from the end. I have no idea what
purpose the stick has.
1925. The first symbol says "there's a petrol pump over there". The
second one says "petrol pump". Or "gas pump" for Americans, I guess.
1926. Back in the day.... Interesting that this is item 1926, because
that is the year that Alfred Dunhill made this item. Country folk had no
problem carrying 10'poles around with them for determining the
touchability of things, but as they started moving to the cities this
became impractical. This is a carrying case for a screw-together 10'pole.
1921- Hey! This is a family site!
1922- stick it over a small fire built around something you want to
1924- bung puller
1925 first pic- fuel door on the left. 2nd pic often means fuel door
on the rt.
1926- collapsible monopod
1921 - Powered jump rope?
1922 - Resembles my smelting furnace.
1923 - Looks like an above ground root cellar. Although it could also be
a well house. Some were used for both.
Picket fence would be to keep animals, kids, other critters out of the
building while it is open and on display. Cannot make out the device on
the door very well. Could be a water skin but hard to say.
1924 - Some type of bung or cap puller?
1925 - Both are fuel symbols, the top one also has an arrow telling the
operator which side the fuel fill is on. Usually found on the fuel level
gauge in a vehicle. I have also seen them painted on roads and signs
telling you that there is a fuel station nearby.
1926 - Looks like an old surveyors tool case. Once held the proverbial
"ten foot pole"
1922: An incinerator for sensitive papers?
1924: Thumbscrew for James G. Rossman's Foot Iron for Stage Scenery
Braces. Patent 648 531, May 1, 1900. The flange kept the thumbscrew
from coming out of the iron and being lost.
1926: Could be a case for a form of bangalore torpedo: several threaded
pipe bombs to be screwed together and shoved where a soldier couldn't reach.
Great, thanks for the patent, I had found one for a similar item but yours
looks more like the one in the photo on the web site.
There were a couple of tough ones in this set but they've all been answered
correctly this week:
