I'll take $50, if you pay shipping and paypal fees
(if there are any). It's all free and works as it should.

Chad, I've never seen anything like this before. I'd be curious to know if anyone else has ever seen this style of S&P shaker as well. For sure it is a new one on me. Thanks for taking the time to post this oddity.

I write you to tell you that the English translated version of my Thesis Dissertation titled
The Forgotten Years of Bibendum. Michelin’s American Period in Milltown:
Design, Illustration and Advertising by Pioneer Tire Companies (1900-1930)

is now available online for free at the University of Barcelona Thesis Depository:

http://diposit.ub.edu/dspace/handle/2445/126382

This Thesis Dissertation, written originally in Castilian Spanish, was the fruit of a deep ten-year research. It was first presented in 2015 at the University of Barcelona to get the Phd degree, and it was recognized with the maximum academic distintion cum laude. The English translation was finished in 2018 thanks to the financial support of the late Bruce T. Halle and the management of Susan Driver, curator of the Collection of Discount Tire turn-of the-century lithograph tire posters. I’m so grateful for their support and endorsement.

The pdf files has been prepared and concived to be printed on paper. The Thesis can be downloaded separately by chapters, where the images appear reproduced in full color and in good resolution. Files with the covers/back covers of the four volumes are also provided. It is made with the intention that everyone can print it on paper and bind it for your own enjoyment.

I recommend reading first the Preface+Foreword plus Introduction to understand what kind of work it is.

Thesis Dissertation Preface+Foreword


I think you will delight it, specially the chapters dedicated to American forgotten tire companies such as FISK, KELLY, REPUBLIC, GILLETTE, HOOD, MILLER, LEE, among others. As a taste, take a look at:

GILLETTE TIRES and the Migthy Polar Bear

LEE TIRE & RUBBER and the Smiling Tire


Although it is deep in the textual content, do not worry ... it is not boring, and it is also very visual (it contains more than 4,400 images, most of them never published before).

I 'm looking forward to reading your opinions...

I wish you enjoy it!

Your friend in Barcelona,

Pau

**And excuse-me for my sure horrible English. Do not worry ... the thesis has been translated into a perfect American English by a professional translator! ;-)

Picked up this pump Saturday and am unsure of the maker. Need some help to verify maker and possibly confirm a maker that was suggested by the previous owner. The man I got it from used it up to the day his building burned and it was then relagated to the back of the barn where I got it from. In the barn were some other pumps that were used after the store was rebuilt.

Not the set, just the pepper, but an unusual one for sure. Any ideas as to originality, origin, etc.? My guess is English?
