RARE Aurora Thermometer late 60s to about 1970. Would be given out to hang in hobby shops.
FIRST OF ALL I HATE WRITING LONG NOTES. THIS IS A NOTE FOR SOME OF THE GUYS AT U.I JUST CAME ACROSS YOUR SITE TODAY 1/28/19 ABOUT THE THERMOMETER IS IT REAL. I GOT THEM FROM A TRUCK DRVER WHO WORKED FOR AURORA IN THE 60S & 70S. I THINK IT WAS 1996 WHEN I MET HIM. HE WAS TAKING THE THERMOMETER BACK TO THE COMPANY THAT MADE THEM. AURORA WAS NOT HAPPY WITH THE WAY THEY LOOKED. HE STOPED AT HIS HOUSE FOR LUNCH WITH THE TRUCK PARKED OUTSIDE. ANOTHER BIG TRUCK CRASHED INTO THE AURORA TRUCK.
THEY NEVER WANTED TO PICK THE BOXES UP AT HIS GARAGE THEY CALLED IT A LOSS AND ASKED IF HE COULD PUT THEM OUT FOR GARBAGE. THEY SAT IN HIS GARAGE IN BOXES FOR YEARS THEN WENT INTO HIS BASEMENT. IN ABOUT 1992 I STARTED PUTTING ADS IN PENNY SAVERS HERE ON LONG ISLAND AURORALAND AND THATS HOW I MET THIS TRUCK DRIVER. HE LIVED IN FRANKLIN SQUARE L.
HE MOVED AND MIGHT HAVE PASSED AWAY BY NOW. I ALSO MET MANY PEOPLE WHO WORKED FOR AURORA OR PEOPLE WHO HAD AURORA STUFF. IF YOU GO TO BUCKWHEATS MODEL WEB SITE YOU CAN SEE THE TWO THERMOMETERS BACK IN 1999. GO TO PHILS BASEMENT AT HIS SITE THAT WAS MY COLLECTION IN 1999.I STARTED RECOLLECTING IN 1988 NOW IN 2019 ITS A BIGGER COLLECTION. AND YES THIS IS PHIL C.
