A Rare Possession by S. Arthur Roxy, 279 Prospect Ave., East Aurora, New York My father, Joseph W. Roxy, purchased this machine in its original form as indicated on the duplicated photograph in 1885. Said wagon was used in various amusement parks and drawn with a tongue hitch from storage place to midway. I, the present owner, inherited this equipment when still a young person. Many years ago, I built the present trailer under same. Mr. Roxy believes that his equipment is the most photographed and the only one Double Kettle Popcorn Wagon of this model and size left in the world. Originally there were five of this type and model built by the C. Cretors Company of Chicago, Illinois. Mr. Roxy, the second generation owner, boasts that the late Walt Disney at one time offered him a fabulous sum of money to gain possession of this particular popcorn wagon for his famous Disney Land in California
