Hello AGM fans, Not sure where we go with this info but "tossing it out here!" A little background, around the time i post this several related things happened. > Discussion unrelated (directly) to this, re Coleman No.1 of Feb 1923... a "Tourist" stove is in the mix. > I get the impression there's interest in early AGM. > Scouter Jan had posted 1924 or earlier "TOURIST" Albert Lea Foundry Pat. Pending. (posted in AGM category). > I posted a "1924 or later TOURIST Albert Lea Foundry Pat. Dec 1924 (posted in AGM). Right now, this post is inspired in-part by Trevor comment within Jan's Tourist post: "I can not find any information on the stoves produced by Hans Hanson's Albert Lea Foundry before the birth of the American Gas Machine company." So right or wrong, to this point I get impression Albert Lea Foundry became AGM? ... or was absorbed? / bought-out? by AGM and that still may be. Today for fellow stovies to enlighten me or ponder yourselves: 1922 Field and Stream May-October is available via google . Where we can see AGM advertises their No.3 and No.12. AGM stoves sell uninterrupted afterwards as well. Albert Lea Foundry for some time (pre 1925) had been selling their Tourist (Pat pending). They continued to sell their Tourist Pat'd Dec 1924. These dates may conflict w/Albert Lea Foundry becoming AGM... Not sure how long after 1925 but for year(s) leading up to c1924/25, it is seeming to me, the two separate companies co-existed in Albert Lea, Minnesota. I said I'd toss it out here, maybe I should have warned you it was a curve ball. AND I know relatively nothing about lanterns/lamps, might a lampie already be familiar w/AGM history and have this sorted? a curious omc tag @scouterjan @shagratork @Matty to name a few (post is for all, not slighting others here) PS btw Field & Stream 1922 May-October also advertises PW Auto Kamp Kook Kit. Zero Albert Lea Foundry or Coleman ads.
