Camp stove, how old are these?

Postby cuyeda » Mon Dec 22, 2008 1:59 am

I didn't get a chance to look at the tags, but any idea how old these are? There may be several different brands there, but should all be about the same vintage.

The one in the top picture is a Prentiss Wabers Preway brand stove. They were often called Auto Cook Kits. This model dates to the mid 1930's.

I cant tell what the other ones are but I would say they are mid 30's or earlier.

Mark,
I can say that it is no where near Indiana. :lol:

I just thought it would be cool to share pictures with others on the forum as an enjoyment. I probably would never see these kind of items EVER. Not with out trying. The location is not important, and is a good friend of mine since 8th grade.

NOTE: This is not a guessing game who can determine the real location. Most people would never have a clue, and we would like to keep it that way. So if you are fortunate to know who, where etc. keep it to yourself. With that said, thank you for your discretion.

Enjoy the rest of the pictures here. Sorry there are no pictures of teardrops, just expensive trailers. If the servers are not connecting try again later.
