MSA Stretcher from Poole & Hunt Foundry Basement in Baltimore
Packed in galvinized tube. From 30's/40's?
Pretty good shape - a few small tears. Nice display piece.
Tube is a bit banged up but in pretty good shape.
From the Baltimore Industry Tours website -
"In the 1850s, Poole & Hunt made parts for steam engines and railroad cars and cast the 36 iron columns and brackets that support the U.S. Capitol dome; in the 1860s they cast cannon barrels and cannon balls to preserve the Union. During World War I they built costal artillery mounts and battleship turret rings. The foundry was highly capable and had an international reputation."
This came a little after that period (30's - 50's - and was found in basement)
See ebay and etsy for comparison prices - they are 600 - 820, some have a differnet stretcher or blanket.
Cash only - no shipping. Thanks
