The mystery of the antique wheelchair

The mystery of the antique wheelchair


NRRTS member Wayne Smith came across an antique wicker back wheelchair recently.

Wayne is now on the hunt for more info and maybe someone who could help him track the wheelchair's travels before it was found in southern Oregon.

Medstar's Gerry Dickerson thinks it might be Civil War era. Another source told Wayne the manufacturer might be Gendron, and it might be from around 1940.

Anyone who might have some clues for him, please feel free to leave a comment here and/or email him at [email protected].

UPDATE: Freeport HME sent me these links on Twitter with very similar wheelchairs... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQ1_-XvYm2s and http://sci.rutgers.edu/forum/showthread.php?t=143878.
