These are all Draper looms. The first one is a 40" E, the second is a
    50" XD, the third is a shuttleless built in 1972 and the gray one above is a
    1974 shuttleless. The clipping below is from a Rockwell newsletter.

     The 40" E was originally a 36" R.H.E model built in 1901. It was lengthened
    to 40" by Loray Mills in 1910.

      The card on the 50" XD tells that it operates at 162 picks per minute and
    that the fabric on it has 5952 warp ends.
