i am looking for any information i can find on an old (at least 50 years) pool table called the adelphian by victor. it was sold by the seattle bowling and billiard supply company to a local bowling alley and is now privately owned. perhaps there is a billiards historian out there you may know of. any and all help will be greatly appreciated. thanks much, robbin

I have never heard of it personally, but after just a few minutes of searching on Google, I found the following links:

Forum Post on MOVING a Victor Table - Maybe you can contact owner to discuss in more detail? (http://www.pool-forum.net/pool/Moving_a_Pool_Table_205663.html)

Brunswick made a table named "Victor" - The same one? (http://www.brunswickbilliards.com/history/antique_tables/victor.html)

I'm sure there are more. You might try using Google too. I doubt you will find a plethora of information on the table, but maybe just enough. Besides, what type of info are you looking for anyhow? Do you own the table? Thinking about buying the table?

Here's a link to an antiques auction where someone is selling an "Adelphian by Victor 5x9 slate pool table":

Maybe you could email the seller for information.

Contact Ed Lanza at his shop - Ed Lanza Billiard Co, Magnolia, NJ - at 856-346-0384. His father worked for the Victor company and he could give you some history on the table. Ed deals with antique tables, too.
