This 1953 vintage ad for Ellicott Dredges has a black and white illustration by E. Carter Perkins of a dredge head close up and a portable dredge in the background and the headline:
“Put a Dragon’s teeth to work on your
Reservoir · Settling Basin · Swampland · Flood Control”
Year Published: 1953
Approximate overall size – inches: 10 x 13
Artist: E. Carter Perkins
“The dragon is portable–easily knocked down and transported by trailer-truck or flat car–and quickly re-assembled on land or water. The dragon is versatile–a compact unit with every modern dredge feature, designed to operate in locations formerly inaccessible to dredges.”
This is a 67 yr. old original vintage ad removed from a 1953 publication and is not a reproduction of any kind.
