Hi people.

A friend of mine is attempting to write a book on the history of Kriesler ( its not me ) . Could any of you please email me photos and info on any of your sets. Its a young man that really has his head screwed on properly and lives and breathes Kriesler.

Quite a few ex-Kriesler staff in the Sydney chapter of the HRSA. Suggest he contacts chapter president John McIlwaine to get the word out to those guys.

Hello Carl,
There is a guy called Juan D' Alton who has a youtube channel and in threads all over the net he mentions how he worked for Kriesler in the late 50s at the Newtown factory.
He is no spring chicken but is still alive and was a month ago.
You maybe able to contact him through his channel which is not Kriesler related, but he started work for Kriesler in 1958

And, the ads with Mike Walsh? Oddly enough, I cannot find any on Youtube.
