September 16. 1974, Leon Thornwell leaned back in his lawn chair and motioned his brother Lester, to toss him another cold one out of the ice chest. It had been a long hot summer in Amarillo, Texas and the Thornwell boys were tired of the oppressive heat. They thought they’d spend a day at the lake to escape the blazing sun, but once they arrived, they discovered that the lake had diminished to nothing more than a mud puddle. So they found a large tree, parked themselves under it, deployed their folding lawn chairs, and resigned themselves to another sweltering afternoon.
When the cooler was empty of beverages, all that remained was icy cold water. Leon motioned again to this brother who nodded and then proceeded to pour half of the cold water over Leon’s head. Lester returned to his lawn chair without a word and Leon stood up, carried the ice chest over to his seated brother and poured the rest of the ice chest contents over Lester’s head. The two brothers sat side-by-side in their lawn chairs surveying the majestic mud pond before them. Leon turned to Lester and said, “Brother I do believe it’s fixin’ to cool down, I’m starting to notice a chill in the air.”
For sale is a pair of dandy folding aluminum lawn chairs with bright green & white, black accented plastic webbing. These classic chairs measure 31" tall with a 17" seat rise and are 22.5" wide. The chairs fold down to 4". We are dating these to the 1970's.
These chairs are in very good vintage condition considering their age. The aluminum frames are sturdy with just a few minor dings. Since they are aluminum, there's no rust except on a few of the steel rivet heads. The plastic webbing is also in good shape with bright colors and tight weaving for the most part. We did notice some minor fraying on one of the chairs--where the very outside run of thread is coming loose in a few spots but it does not effect the integrity of the chair. The chairs fold down and set up smoothly.
