Is that machine (next to Wards Signature) a Westinghouse?

I think it's a Wizard Citation which is basically a Princess made by Eureka. Forgot which store sold Wizard vacs - was it Western Auto?

That sounds right to me! First thought of mine anyway, I normally go with that!

Actually - yes I checked with Google: Wizard was the private label name for Western Auto stores. You can actually see a nice little "W-A" logo on the Princess.....

Hey...at my age (52), I am amazed that I can still remember some trivial stuff like "Wizard by Western Auto"!!! :-)

Seems like from my local store, most? were Eureka, had a few! My canned ham had enough power to not like certain brand bags, ripped them apart! This would have been about 81, I think it had push buttons. Loved it.
