It’s no secret; I have a thing for old oil cans. There is something appealing about their simplicity of purpose, and yet, how vital they were for the maintenance of complex machinery.
My friend, co-instructor and photographer John Corcoran owns this example from the 1920’s, an Eagle #66.
The many years of use is evidenced by the gorgeous patina.
