McGraw-Edison street lamps « on: April 01, 2022, 11:02:00 AM » Author: Rommie
Hi all,

The admin team have received a request from a non-member who wishes to sell 2 McGraw-Edison street lamps from the 1960s that he found in his father.s house. As he doesn't wish to join at the moment, I am posting this request on his behalf.

The lanterns are currently located in Lorain, OH but he can bring them to Kansas City, where I assume he is located, if necessary. I don't know if he would be prepared to ship them, these things do tend to be quite costly, so if anyone is interested, please let me know and I'll pass on his contact details.

I've had another message, he'll ship if the buyer is prepared to cover the costs, but would prefer them both to go together.

I suggest one of you buy them both and do a trade with the other.
