I have a "floor model" of that style. I dont quite remember the name, but it is of that vintage, and does work.

Would look good next to my jukebox! I have seen those at swap meets.
Maybe Lorainfurniture can hook you up with a picture. The floor models are the coolest looking.

unfortunately owned by a public entity who's about as likely to give permission to use them a baboon will sit down to a enlightening conversation

Actually Moses is a pretty nice guy...

Ask...all they can say is no.

and I guess the words "Thanks for trying, Stoney" haven't passed thru your brain...which means me searching for a public use image and emailing it to you are really slim.

Of course, you being the "webguru" could have found one yourself.

Considering there's hundreds of people here I thought I would ask if anyone had one. I've tried several places before on images and 99.9% of the time the image requests are turned down or they want a ton of money. but thanks for the information anyways it's not like I didn't already Troll through Google images and a few other photo places looking... eesh...
