My dad was born on a farm in Indiana in 1928, he said the best Christmas he ever had as a child was one year when he got a harmonica, a popgun, and an orange!

My mom reminds me often that Christmas for her kin (there were 12 kids) for several years was a new pair of socks with an orange in them.

Neat horns. Those sprayers used to be worthless, but now collectors are turning them into things to hang on the wall...

I bought a Hudson sprayer from a guy who said he painted a Plymouth with it.

I'd rather have the horns.

Yeah, but even the "sprayer" looks to be solid brass & copper! All polished up it'll look great!

I'm amazed at how often you see those old brass "Pyrene" fire extinguishers all polished up and mounted in some very visible spot on a Model "T". I remember when the railroad I worked for at the time, literally "threw away" (as in, thrown in the dumpster) hundreds of those old things. Wish I'd snagged a couple of them as they really do polish up pretty nice, even tho' those ol' carbon tetrachloride things are pretty worthless for actual use as a fire extinguisher.

Well, really, that's not quite right. They really did work pretty well as a fire extinguisher, but years ago, when everybody became concerned about the dangerous fumes from "carbon tet", the usual "over-reaction resulted,....hence the dumpster!

i believe the ww2 army sprayers were brass like that, look for a U.S. marking on it, or faint traces of olive drab

When I read the title of this thread I thought it was going to be about geese! That'a about all they do all day is two honks and a squirt! My yard looks like a goose latrine.
