I found this on craigslist last night and just couldn't resist.  According to the guy I bought it from for $5 it was in his grandmother's livingroom until just recently and hasn't been used since 1960!

The brochures were still in the bottom of the hassock.

Original right down to the Belden cord and plug.  This baby is a cleaning machine!  The motor runs soooooo smoothly and quietly, all you hear is the rush of air.

If Eureka had continued to sell a canister like this from 1972 and of course during the 1980s, it would've been teamed up with their Roto-Matic Power Team nozzle.
