Vertical Broiler

I found this site while searching for some information on an antique cast iron, gas fired, vertical broiler. The ones described in the section on Louis' lunch in Conn. They use them to make hamburgers there, and some say the guy who started this place invented the hamburger. I believe they were made by a company called Bright Beach Co., and I don't think they have been manufactured for over 1/2 century. Does anyone have more information on these broilers? You all seem to know quite a bit about food... I thought someone here could point me in the right direction.

thanks,

    I suggest you contact Ken Lassen for information about the broilers.

    I meant to say Jeff Lassen. He runs Louis' Lunch. His grandfather was Louis. If you go to http://www.louislunch.com/ you will find a link to Jeff Lassen.
