compasses were marketed to auto campers as well.

Ceebynite, leedawl, and Telaway were some of the catchy names they used for marketing to everyday people

Here is a running board cooler that is in pretty nice shape for its age- had it up on the shelf for way too long and should belong to someone who can put it to better use. Cloth is in great shape other than a few stains. If anyone is interested, send me a PM.

Linus,
This is a Crescent Co cooler,patent 1902. From the days when ice was cut out of a lake or river in January,buried in sawdust and dug up as needed for ice box or cold drinks. In this thing the lemonade was put in the porcelain tank and sawdusty branch water ice put behind it. $125 plus shipping. The other ting is a Crosley Icy Ball refrigeration device from the thirties. The left ball was put in the cooler,right ball stayed out.$175 plus shipping. PM me if interested.

Hi grizwaldo-
that crosley ice ball is sure unusual. I guess crosley was making coolers in those days werent they?

For auto camping, they seem a little large for me. I have a good water cooler already so I think they are better suited for someone else. I will share them with some of my other auto camp friends and see if i can help you make a sale.

Thanks again for sharing!
Linus

That valve is not tight but,yes it would need to seal first in the drink tank and then in the ice section or water from the melted ice would run out the crack.

still looking for antique auto camp equipment.

Runningboard kitchens, folding cots, folding tables, axes, shovels. Things that say AUTO CAMP on them. Tents, stoves, stove stands, cook kits, water buckets, medical equipment. You name it! Things from the 20s or 30s.

We had to cancel our antique auto camp this year which was disappointing but perhaps we can have another one later in the year.

I have a set of binoculars in a leather pouch which I don’t use any more. They are dated 1918 and belonged to a J Cripps, probably in WWI. I have no idea what they are worth. I bought them in London about sixty years ago.
Contact me by email so I can send pictures if you are interested at tonybowkerATaol.com

Thought you might be interested in a original auto campers Tin Can Tourist radiator badge in excellent original condition with great original patina. It measures 3 inches in diameter. It is solid brass sheet with a original lacquer coating. It is the only one of these I have ever seen in years of collecting auto camping period accessories. I am asking $100 plus postage.

Perry,
those are fantastic lighters! I would buy them except I already have a set!

Tony,
I have a pair of binoculars already that are called "tourist" binoculars and they are shown in one of my antique auto camp catalogs. I really appreciate the thought though. Thank you.

Jay,
Im thinking about that badge - ill send you an email.

still hunting for more auto camp items.

Thanks jay for the TCT badge. Its perfect. The company that made it is still in business. I think they have been around for 160 years.


Here are some pics of the riddle sheet metal runningboard kitchen. Made in SF. I have one of the kitchens but not the brochure.
