$25 for both isn't too bad. Couldn't tell if the Kirby is an Omega or just a Classic. They both would clean up real nice. Here's what they would both look like cleaned up and with attachments.

If I know right, Electro-Hygiene was initially established in 1934 and its first machine, the model 80, incorporated several improvements over the Royal clone Health-Mor Sanitation System. But... the HM Sanitation System continued being built by Royal until 1939, when HM decided to go out on its own with the model 200 canister, which was to be the first Filter Queen brand machine (although Royal continued to manufacture the Filter Queen for HM until 1953).

Glad you enjoyed the pics. I do try to have the vacs in my collection as complete as possible, however the Electro-Hygiene is missing the wands, floor brush, and crevice tool, and the Kirby is missing the hose.
Ben, you are partially right, but there's really no connection between Electro-Hygiene and Health-Mor except that they were both built by P.A. Geier. True, Electro-Hygiene was established in 1934 with the first being the model 80, but they were originally a wholly owned subsidiary of the P.A. Geier Co. and the model 80 was a Royal Purifier rebadged as Electro-Hygiene.
Health-Mor on the other hand, was a completely different company, and their Sanitation System was NOT a Royal clone, but was built for them by P.A. Geier to THEIR specifications. In case you haven't noticed, the Health-Mor has a different nozzle, different handle, and is the ONLY vac that P.A. Geier ever built with a foot switch. Here's a pic of my Health-Mor for comparison. Hope this helps.
