Old belt driven ceiling fans

Recommended Posts

There was a bar in downtown Richmond called Shockoe slip Cafe.   It had an antique belt drive fan that covered the entire place.    It was awesome and I would stare at it when we went there.   That was in the 80's and 90's.     Shockoe slip was initially tobacco warehouses and such but the Confederates burned it when Richmond fell in 1865.  It was rebuilt with red brick and that fan was from the late 1800's is my guess.  All fancy cast iron with large belts at least 8" wide.
