But a Hoover, the same colour as Santa's reindeer.

A big 'Thank You' to John Peirson, on AW.ORG.
The Hoover went from Hamilton, to Vancouver and back again, two hours from conception.

Lurch, my live in butler loves the new/old Hoover. It is much easier to get around.
Oh, he has the drink tray, and by judging by the slant, he has been into the gin.

It looks delightful, and I love the maple leaf, we don't do anything that classy down here. Happy Hoovering for years to come!

Just wondering how old this vacuum is? On the bottom it reads, Hoover Cleaner, 118, patented in Canada.
November 11- 1941
September 7 1943
RD. 1948.

In a blue stamp it reads, The Hoover Co, June 10-1969
model 118

This cleaner refurbished in 1969 obviously.

That's really a prize, Brian. The original Maple Leaf bag is probably the rarest piece on it; they just don't survive the decades of use...unlike lurching live in butlers...
