I realize I never posted theses. Probably because they are not that interesting. The three first pictures are from August 2011. The last one is from April 2012.
My church that have the old blue KDK pedestal fan that Philippe posted once have also theses three other pedestal fans:
1990s Super 18''/45cm pedestal fan with the rotative knob on the front.
1990s Super 16''/30cm pedestal fan with the rotative knob on the back of the motor.
Early 2000s Honeywell High Velocity 16''/30cm pedestal fan. I have the same but in the remote controlled version. This one is the regular version with the mechanical knob on the top of the motor.
It's so annoying how I always come across fans with grills on the wrong side so the brand on the center is crooked. This church used to have a 1990s Super 16''/40cm desk fan along with two 1970s blue desk fans but I don't see theses anymore.
This cheap brand new (2010ish) Forest Air 12''/30cm desk fan is at my friend's place in the laundry room. The blades are like a sheet of plastic.

In a restaurant in Rosemont, I saw a childhood fan. A pink 15cm Super desk fan from the late 1980s. I used to have the same one except in light blue when I was a child. My mother originally purchashed it in 1988. Unfourtunatly it got trashed in 1996. It was so cute. I wish I could find one, not in pink (eww) but in blue but the colored ones are so rare. The white and grey ones from the 1990s are already very cute.
It was on so the flash was used to stop the blades. The blades are so dirty that they don't look too pink anymore.

Finally some sightings that are more interesting.
A friend of mine have this late 1990s - early 2000s Honeywell 40 cm pedestal fan.
My local Salvation Army had this brown early 1980s 23 cm Super desk fan exactly like Philippe have. I did not bought this one but I bought something else.
My local library have this mid 1980s Sears 30 cm desk fan at the front counter. It's been there for as long as I can remember. This style and colors would usually be more early 1980s but because of the newer Sears logo, it has to be at least 1984. It's made by RECO. Apparently RECO's, even the plastic ones were made in Canada. Usually with theses colors the blade set should be clear brown but it appears it has clear grey blades which matches the fact that it's at least 1984 in age. It's in awesome condition for it's age and considering it has always been in a public place. I love the speed knobs on theses with the round stainless steel accents.
Fallowing the Rosemont ceiling fans sightings for those who saw them in the other section:
The same restaurant as last time with the small pink Super fan also have two of theses recent UberHaus 45 cm high velocity fans.
The same book store with the four Canarms and the small 4 Seasons Galaxy have this awesome Seabreeze Turbo-Aire 30 cm. A quiet five bladed high velocity floor fan. Theses are very quiet for something considered high velocity. They are still sold and still made in Canada. We can see by the speed selector that it was on medium. I was far from it and I could feel a lot of air from it. This is usually a floor fan but they put it above the door on a shelf.
In that book store there was also an early 1990s Galaxy 30 cm desk fan with grey solid blades and spaced grills at the cash and a recent black high velocity Whirlpool floor fan.
