    What amazes me is generator technology has not changed much in 72 years. Imagine what that unit cost back then compared to the units of the same size / output of today? As a kid in the 70’s I did not know anyone who had a generator and if they did, they were old military generators. Now a days they are selling generators at department stores and groceries stores. Cheap as they come but almost everyone seems to have access to one if needed. Thanks for sharing!
