1) What was the last hoover to be the "coffee can" style? What was the first to not be that style? Do you have any pics of either of these machines?

2) What was the first model that was out after the Model 0? Do you have any pictures?

The last of the "coffee cans", if you count those with headlights, were the Model "Jubilee" style machines, which had been re-designed by Henry Dreyfus from the TRUE coffee-can style ones, probably the last of which was Model 750 (with the tacked-on headlight).

Here's a Jubilee ad of the Model 475, circa 1935...(I think someone just re-published this one again here on the Forum; mine is from a Vacuum of the Day picture). After this model, the all-new Model 150, no longer coffee-can shaped, debuted in early 1936:

Hey....YOU were the one that just re-posted the 475 ad! I loved this series of ads. Hoover was classy during this period. Here's another, I think supplied by Jack in England....
