The machine is going to need some work. The bag cap and wands will need to go to for new Chrome

Mary Ann Vacuum Cleaner

I have a Mary Ann Vacuum cleaner in working order. I would like to sell it to someone who collects such items. I don't like waste and I sell a lot of things on ebay that other people just throw away.
I live in England, so I don't know how many Brits might read this, or what sort of price to put on it.
I will have to treat and paint the inside of the cylinder, because it has gone rusty. Then I will post some photos.

Took a wrong turn and wound up at the same place, eh? Serendipitous.

Looked like a nice place. Some parts of Africa I think don't look much unlike the southwestern US.
