Default Ambulance cot collection!

Here is a few photos of some of my cots and stretchers!

First up a Washington Model 21 signal level with 5-IS designation. Sold this one a few years ago.

The last photos of my series ends with this 1940's vintage tan canvas roll up stretcher with wood handles and tan canvas webbing style straps. Maker unknown.

That canvas stretcher... I have one similar to it, a friend who works at Galion hospital found it in a locked room during remodeling & dropped it off. It is absolutely mint & has never seen light of day! It has cast handles though as well as the wood & i've no idea how old it is but it looks very old.
