I am new and I have a major question. I've inherited a coin operated Irving Kane pool table and I am seeking information about the history. I know that the table was moved into the family in the early 70's. Can someone tell me where to begin my research?

I have never heard of such table, but if it is named after Irving Crane, then I know the man but not the table. Maybe someone else can help.

They were a popular table among some vendors back then. The name I believe is Irving Kay. What I remember about them was they were well built and real work horses, with pretty heavy corner castings and legs. Also somewhat stylish for the time.

Irving Kaye were made in Brooklyn,Ny if my memory serves me. They were the tightest pocket bar tables made. They had cast iron corners on some of the tables and were quite elaborite for bar tables. If your home can only fit 7 ft tables the bar tables are the best table for the money. ####
