The first picture is of the brush partially done
The second is the brush rebristled and trimmed
The third is of the brush strip on the Morrow
The forth is from the front showing how the bristles are below the nozzle.

Nice on the rebristling would like to see more pictures of the machine. Is there a sani emptor type bag attachment or is that something else behind the machine? First time I have heard of the Morrow vacuum.

I did a thread on the Morrow and the Federal a while back
The Morrow was made in Waukegan Illinois
Here's two pictures from the previous thread

The name Morrow rang a bell with me, and then I remembered that I had a brochure for the Morrow Model D. I have no idea what year this brochure is from - probably the 1970's.

Here's the cover page:

Thank you both for the pictures and of the owners manual. From the description sounds like it was good performer. I will have to look up the other link you have posted on the Morrow.

The way the bag is attached to the outlet makes for a nice dirt trap much like the sani emptor on the Kirby.

Just out of curiosity how long did they make the Morrow. Portable mentioned that booklet probably dated to the 1970's, but the cleaner itself looks like something right out of the teens or 1920's. I thought Royal was the last to make a straight suction upright with their Electro Hygiene?
