Default "New" Kit

Hi all, thought you might like to see pictures of this kit. My father circa 1949, no idea of the brand or sizes. My understanding is that the bass drum had a rotating light inside that would make "the water appear to flow"...

Dad had to give up drums after a work injury cost him two fingers on his left hand and all but gross movement in his left thumb...also played trumpet, sang very well and played guitar (used his left ring finger like a slide).

Any ideas on the kit would be appreciated, he sold it not long after the accident.

I guess the bass is around 32 or 34 inch or maybe bigger??

I like the enormous cups on the hi hat cymbals :-)

wow its really cool to see vintage gear back when it wasn't vintage, do you have any more pics?

I'd say its probably a 32", don't know if they made bass drums any bigger than that back then, but I am by no means an expert.

but please more pics?

Thats amazing. I have never seen pics of a kit from back then like that! Also is that hi-hat fixed as it is, it doesnt seem to have a pedal or anything.
