This is an old photo of me circa 1990 (yes, I was 8-1/2 years old), and I'm at a nighttime school event where I am seen with one of two vacuums they had: a fairly-new (1987-88) Royal model 660Z Heavy Duty Commercial upright.

The other Royal they had was also quite fairly-new: an 18" wide-track model 680Z or 618Z Heavy Duty Commercial.

Ben, that's a wonderful photo.

Are the Royals small machines? (I have never seen one in person), or is it just an illusion because you are a child in the picture?
You should go back to the school and offer a donation in exchanged for the vacuum if they still have it. lol

Awesome shoes!

Wish I had pictures of when I was a kid with vacuums. Guess no one in my family took photos.

Somewhere within my family is a picture of me, aged 6, having a nap with my are over my grandparent's Kirby D50. If I ever find it I will post it. But, I must confess, the picture was staged.
I was a drama queen from birth.

Well, as you can see, I was much shorter then, obviously. If I were to stand tall against my Royal 6103, I believe I'd be "dwarfing" it, correct?
