3 in 1 Windshield Wiper - Help on identifying Sign In

Any help is appreciated! I have an old manual windshield wiper made by International Auto Equipment Co of 83 Thirty Third Street Brooklyn, N.Y. It is a 3 in 1 Windshield Cleaner and states that it "Fits all cars" so I assume it must be early 1900's. I have attached a picture of the wiper. I have several other pictures of the wiper and original package and can email them to anyone interested in helping.
Thanks for any help/info you can give me.

Pics did not show up here as an attachment?? Can you describe what the 3 in 1 means? I think you might be able to create your own from hardware store stuff for currently used window squeegees,

Good luck,

T

Got the pics - wow that is cool! My guess on this (sorry I'm getting old but not quite that old) is this manual wiper which I have seen, would fit any car of that vintage and this particular item would as stated on box, -- clean the windshield, no doubt wipe the windshield and I'm lost with what "3" would be but probably "dry" the windshield.

By the graphic on the box I would say this is the teens perhaps into the 20s as there is instrumentation on the dash board that suggest an electrical system was in that car.

Bet you this company became Trico, still famous in windshield wipers and other parts like vacuum switches and vacuum motors which was just a bit later than this box and wiper/cleaner suggests.

Interesting stuff,

T

I'm not going to be much help on this one, but maybe take a few trips to some of the bigger car shows. A lot of the people their may have knowledge or leads for you.
