Subject: RE: BS: Elderly electrical appliances
Jennie beat me to the sewing machine observation - I have an old White from the 1950s given to me by my cousin, and we have a couple of the Singers, the Featherweight and a rotary from 1951.
I have a reel-to-reel given me by my aunt, dating from probably the 1960s. I have some ancient lamps (from early in the last century) that need new wiring so sit out in the garage awaiting the time to do that.
I have my family's Halicrafter radio (AM and Shortwave) from the late 1940s, and some really old Bakelite cased radios (AM) from a family estate. OH - and the family Victrola. Whoa. What a packrat. . . and for very old technology, I have the upright grand piano made in 1885 and purchased new by the family.
