The NWHS Archives has a drawing, NW-B38064 dated 12/1/1941, for a "Standard
Cuspidor." I don't know what the drawing shows, but if it has a pattern
number, the spitoon was probably made in the N&W foundry. I'll try to look
the drawing up the next time I'm at the Archives.

Hello, all!

Regarding N&W cast iron spittoons, does anyone know if these were produced
by the N&W foundry at Roanoke, or were these procured from another source?
