    Very cool! I used to get air at New England Divers Beverly MA. They had a super cool fill station. That is the air was super cooled. They'd fill a 72 in 2 minutes and it wasn't even warm to the touch!

    I don't have anything near as interesting as you akimbo.
    I do have one on a patio decor tank, more local than anything, but here it is. I haven't found much about the group though. Tank dates '75.

    Florida Underwater Counsel ran the recompression chamber in Miami back in the mid to late 70's. They even had a monthly news letter (The Unbender). I was a member! The really cool thing? They would give "chamber rides". Drop you down to 160' in the chamber then bring you back. I took a "ride" in 1977. I would have to check but I think they went out of business in the early or mid 80's.

    I have the sticker also.

    Between the late 1940s and the early 1950s, Oscar Gugen co-founded the British Sub-Aqua Club and the British diving equipment manufacturing partnership E. T. Skinner & Co., which became Typhoon International during the 1970s. Here are his company's mid-twentieth-century Typhoon brand logos:

    Man this post is a winner for me as I love me some old decals and logos! I was recently talking with Karl with Scuba Museum, Indianapolis about some logos I'm trying to put together. the photos attached are some of my favorites. 8.jpg $_35.jpeg 669c116e6fe5553bc108011e58361a0b.jpg bsacpatches.jpg DiverswaySticker.gif Lecocq_Sam_1.jpg $T2eC16ZHJF0E9nmFSt4+BRRLg(SOmg~~60_12.jpg 21167380_1110674962399485_3913289885939690334_o.jpg saa_logo.gif Seeker.jpg
