Iron Age Ads: The Louden Machinery Company

The Louden Company built a wide variety of barn equipment items, some of which can be seen in these vintage advertisements.

A Louden cupola complete with vane. “As an ornament to the barn it is surpassed by no other ventilator. It is not cheap but how good we can make the Louden cupola. We do not spare any expense to make it lasting,” the catalog notes. The model shown was available in sizes weighing up to 220 pounds.
