Saw this air compressor in the basement of a home I was inspecting.

The house was built around 1900 by a doctor with a home office.

Back in the day they didn't have access to Oxygen like we do now. It was used for various things including running equipment.

A doctor and an air compressor?

Doug, maybe we don't want to know what a 1900's Doc would use an air compressor for? Scares me a bit! :-)

Any idea what it was for?

A dentist I get, but a regular Doc?
