I was kinda hoping this would be Aussie greatest hits.  After all, it's a thread in the Australia section ….

Nope.  It's America's greatest hits ….

Loads of great pics here. Each kettle seems to have a distinct character.

Maybe an oldies but goldies calendar in the making?

I believe the Ranger is from around 1965 and the Statesman is 1964-1968?

The Traveler was introduced in 1956 and continued through the early 1970's
