I was unable to find anything online about Western Blower Company other than a property tax report online which lists the building belonging to Western Blower Associates, build in 1914, at 1700 S Airport Way. I assume this is probably where the fan was made. Looking at Google Street view, I don't see any buildings that have Western Blower's name on them. Maybe will have to bike down there and take a look. Our building was constructed in 1928, and the fan seems like to have been part of the original construction.

 

Any information you can provide about this company would be awesome!
