I have a dual tank IMPERIAL CAR BAR with 2-60 gallon tanks. This 4 tank unit is model #4389 the ad I have dates it 1929. Looks like the unit shown has 3-30 gallon tanks and 1-40 gallon.
This is only the 2nd one I have seen there is a door that pulls down that seals and locks.It also has a ceramic light fixture under the top that lights up the area and globe.I will post pictures when I get a chance.
