vintage superchargers?

Has anyone got pictures or info on different types of vintage blowers. Ihave seen the potvin style and the McCullough vs57 just curios on what was around in the 50's. I'm working on a 52 dodge and plan on keeping the flathead six and think it would be cool with a period looking supercharger. To be clear not looking for a giant increase in power just something interesting looking. I think a roots blower would look best but definitely not against the idea of a centrifigul unit as long as it looks right. I have been having a hard time finding different models with google must be using wrong terms for search. Anything you guys have pictures links etc would be great.

Thanks Kris.

Look up for a paxton supercharger. That is what was used on the studebaker hawks and on the later ford mustangs.

Most of those are early versions of the paxton supercharger.
