This magazine ad is from 1947.

It shows the vacuums being offered by Westinghouse that year.

I wanna get my hands on the blue one!

That little contraption the Hand-Vac is attached to, turns it into an Upright for itty-bitty little houses.

Here's one being used at last year's convention...

When he's not tickling the ivories, Don Pontow travels all over the world demonstrating the Westinghouse!

Sorry about the lousy scan......
