I 'A ncafi nmea a rn aiezv. se -81 183,808.
' This invention relates toIa devicewliich i is adapted to be employed for advertising and other purposes.
of various predetermined articlesor events,
and also other sight openings forthe display of additional data pertaining to the. names, etc. of the respective articles or events.
A specific object of the invention 1s to provide what 1 term an order board tor use more especially to households to fac1l1- tate the ordering and delivering of food. and other supplies'from dealersthereof. 1
Other specific objects and advantages 0 the invention will appear in thefollowing description. t i I 3 o The invention consists in the novel construction, adaptation and combination of parts as hereinafter described andv claimed.
In the accompanying drawings:
Figure 1 is a fragmentary front elevation of an order board embodying my invention, partot the casing front being broken away, and some. of the display memfiers shown "in applied positions- Fig. 2 is a ori-zontal section' taken on line 2.-2 ofFig. 1. F1gs. 3 and 4 are perspectiveviews ofspeeimen display members shown in theprecedmg views. In said drawing, thereferenee numeral 5 represents a casing QIEIbQELId? as hereinafter designated having a: rear Wall 6, a front wall 7, a top wall 8, and horizontal part1- tions 9 dividing the space between Said rear and front walls into a plurality of horizontal compartments as 10, one above another.
These compartments have each an opening, as at 11 in Fig. 2, in one of the sides of I the board.
The front wall 7 is provided with two sight apertures 12 and13 of difl'erent widths for each compartment. 7
These sight apertures are arranged in two columns adjacent to the right hand edge of the board. 1,
The column of wider apertures 12 is located between such edge and the column of narrower apertures 13.
Combined with said of sign members 14 and 15, hereinafter termed slides, which are adapted to be emamples Loaf, Dozen and i dicate the-conventional ways of disposing ofv the respective g0OdS.- These qualif ing board is a plurality ployedin pairs in the respective compartments and adjustably movable therein asv by the provision of a finger .engagea-ble lug, as
16, provided at the right hand end of each slide. As illustrated, the slides 14 which may be termed the article slide, haveprinted or marked thereon, the names 17, as Eggs .or .Cream .or a signification 18, as White or Brown for instance,fto denote a type or'species ofbread.
These article designating words are located upon: the respective sides so that when the latter are in. their housedposi- 'tions asindicated: the upper slide denoted by 14 in Fig l the referred to word will appear at .theassociated apertures 12.-
As illustrated I provide on'each of the slides 14 a qualifyingterm 1.9 as' for' ex- Fint, to inwords or. terms. are disposed. upon the s ides to appear at the respective apertures 1'2 only when the slides therefor. are protruded, asshown. in-the three lower slides 14 in Fig.
1,to 'display'the article names thereof beyond the right hand edge of. the board.
The movement ottheslides 1 1 are limit-' ed to. enable the article names thereof vtobe presented either at the respective aperture yl2or at positions outside otthe board such as. will displayytlie suplementary or qualitymg. marks 19 at the apertures 12 pertaining .theretor shown in Fig. 2,'are employed in the sev eral compartments to the rear of the slides 14, and are characterized by having marked thereon series of numer,alsas'21- in Fig. 3, for example. These numerals are arranged so that the initial ones are, located to be pre- Any suitable-stop. may be utilized 7 sented at the various apertures 13, as
for instance with respect to the lowermost slide 15 in Fig. 1;
By thus. positioning the integers or numerals, it is apparent that the pulling out of its fullest extent of any of the name slides 14, the complementary slides will i normally display the initial numeral. of each whose names are dis la ed as Brown 4 7* c a 3 Eggs and Cream at the respective sight apertures 12, and then withdraw the associated slides 15, if required, to designate at the apertures 13 the quantities of the respective articles desired; for insta ncein the above referred order the slide 15 relating to brown breaduntil the numeral 7 appears in an aperture 13 and with the defining word a loaf stationed at a erture 12 affords a line 4 l reading 7 loaves brown indicating to the man taking orders or delivering goods what kind and how much bread is desired.
"In like manner with respect to the egg order, the slide 14 therefor is regulated to display the words Dozen and Eggs and 'the companion slide thereto is drawn. from its compartment to bring the required numberas 4-at an aperture 13. With regard to the cream order, the slide 14 there.-
for is drawn out as shown in Fig. 1 to dis,- close in this instance the number without ad ust1ng the slide 15 pertaining thereto. The leading number of each row thereof-is what I designate as the initial'nu'mber and when such numbers are requisite to orders, it facilitates the making of the latter by obviating the necessityof disturbing the numeral slides'or, in other words, permits an order to be arranged by simply'pulling out'the respective name slide.
the referred 'tosight aperture;
While I have illustrated a construction now preferred by me, I do not wish to be understood as confining myself thereto exlimited by the following cept as may be claims. 7 .What lclaim, is,
1.'In a device of the character described, a casing having a transversely arranged compartment anda sight aperture in front ofthelatter, two slides adjustably slidable one behind the other in said compartment and having indicating characters thereon, the characters of the rear slide being arranged to be brought selectively to said aperture by suitably adjusting the position of the slide, the front slide being adapted to be sheathed in the casingand withdrawn therefrom selectively.
2. A device of the character described comprising a casing having a plurality of I transversely arranged compartments, said casing having an end openingand two horizontally spaced apart sight apertures for each compartment, and a series of article and number indicating slides extending compartments, each of said article slides having thereon two associated names arranged to have one of them appear at the respective sight opening when an article through said openings into the respective' slide is sheathed within its compartment,
and when the article slide is withdrawn to have such name protruded from the casing and the associated name ofan article slide appear at the referred to sight aperture,
each of said number slideshaving thereon a row of numbers arranged" to be presented.
selectively to the-respective apertureby suitably adjusting the position of the slide, the
complementary article slide being adapted when sheathed in the casing to mask the character of the number slide presented at Signed at Vancouver, B. C Canada, this 14th day of March, 1927. -"EDWARDMAHON.-
