My understanding is that the awnings on Bolers were all rope and pole. Also, if the awning
is an original, the stripes on it run parallel to the Boler
The best way to ascertain originality is if the rail by which the awning
attaches to the Boler
a “C” type rail into which a round rope-like edge on the awning slides.
I’ve seen many add-ons but most original Bolers are rope and pole.
