"Love this picture of downtown Findlay during the gas boom days in the 1880's. It's hard to imagine the natural gas lamps buring day & night all along Main St. It must have been very beautiful in the evening. If you look at the building in this view showing the Leon's sign. Even today the same ornate structure still remains on the top."
From the helpful ebay seller (here's his website: http://www.just-for-openers.org/) --
- 1910s key shaped bottle opener with gas key advertising "KEY TO KRANTZ OLD DUTCH BEER TOLEDO, O. FINDLAY, O.". (Both Sides Shown). JFO Style B-21-268. 3" Long. Very Good Condition. From the collection of a long time JFO Member (Verne Vollrath)
- Many older bottle openers have a small square hole called a "Prest-O-Lite Key". It was used to turn the valve on automobile gas headlights from about 1910 through the early 1930's before electric headlights were widely used.
