Garden Dirigibles Eclipse Old Type of Chimney Sweep
DAYS of the old chimney sweep who wormed his way up or down a grimy flue are fast waning. This giant vacuum cleaner, shown at left, is one of the reasons why. It takes soot from the furnace, pipes and chimney by suction.
After it has finished its cleaning, the air is permitted to escape and the bag fastened to the truck and carted off to the next job. It carries the dirt away with it.
