I had a Stewart Warner AAF marked engine heater similar to the one in the above photos, it now resides at Fagen Fighters Museum in Minnesota.

Here's a photo dated March 17, 2018 at the location of HANGAR 1 where that snowbound B-17 was back in 1944 in Gerry can's previous photo. The hangar is used b a large aircraft maintence firm. the time spread is 74 years, the sliding doors have been replaced and the rooms on the near side expanded but the original WWII Flood Lights are still in place (I doubt they can be turned on).
This hangar survived an F-80 ejection seat incident back in 52 or 53 and if only it could talk, it would have great stories to tell.
Hangar 1 was an everyday sight for me in the 40's-50's.
