An Electric Fan

With the warmth experienced this spring, no doubt many people have been using electric fans. Here, at Market Lavington Museum, we have such a fan from the 1930s.

An electric fan - one of the Treasures of Market Lavington

The fan was made by the metallic Seamless Tube Co Ltd of Birmingham.

It was, appropriately named, The Zephyr.

You can see more pictures of this model of fan by clicking here . The home page for this electric fan site is at http://www.luapnosreip.com/ The catalogue page, below, is not at the museum but is taken from the above site.

Our fan belonged to a White Street family before it found its way to the museum. This year it came out of a storage box and is on display.
