Pages from the Past: Root & VanDervoort advertisement from the August 1911 issue of "Gas Power" magazine.


| June/July 2012


The next time you’re in an antique store, be sure to look through that stack of old newspapers and magazines piled high on the bookshelf.

You just may find something fascinating, like the August 1911 issue of Gas Power that this Root & VanDervoort ad came from. It reads in part: “Here’s just the engine you want. Built especially for the many back-breaking jobs on the farm, in the home, or shop.

You’ll find it just about the handiest and dandiest thing you ever bought because it fits in and relieves both you and the women-folks of so much hard work doing those many tedious, tiresome jobs in a ‘jiffy.’”
