Me thinks its high time we make a running thread dedicated to identifying the hundreds if not thousands of designs of late 19th and early 20th century rat trap pedals. Other interesting and distinct pedals from the period are also going to be represented but primarily rat traps.
Ideally I would love to see only original primary source documents showing both company/model name and the design of the pedal in question so there will be no dispute necessary.

Here's a start-

Great introduction to the pedal "story". I always have loved reading old advertisements, the wording is fascinating. Especially like the one in the Record Pedal one "A True Story"..."he had imitated the widows parrot"....doesn't get any better than that.

My two favorites.... I'd love to find either of these for my Racycle...... First the Ramsey, I wouldn't even care if they had the toe clips, I just think they're the coolest! Or the model 208 Diamond, the cross in the ends matches the Racycle head badge!
