Remember, there’s an exclusive snippet of a work in progress right below this post. It’s from Forecast-book two in my Norse YA trilogy.
But I had to share my unexpected side project!
My husband’s brother and stepfather cleaned out the grandfather’s old storage and they found this vintage 40s or 50s model Frigidaire. (After hours of research, we have narrowed it down to 1948 or 1949.) They asked if we wanted it and when they dropped it off, it was filthy. Several hours of cleaning later, it’s a gem. How cute is this??
It’s in fantastic shape. And um, we were supposed to let it sit some time before plugging it in so I don’t know if it works. I used that time to clean. 😉 (Update: plugged it in and everything fired up, including light–so we’ll see if it gets cold.)
I have all the inside stuff pulled out and drying. Metal racks. The freezer area is tiny. See the drop down metal area? And there’s a huge pull out “hydrator”.
And check out this heavy, glass monster. Seriously, this took forever to clean because it had layers of grime and all those grooves. It has the emblem. After researching, we found out this is the drip tray. Fancy thing for drips, eh?
Here’s the outside emblem. I’m researching to find the year of this refrigerator, so if anyone can tell from the emblem, let me know. It’s an early one.
Hubs worked on the chrome handle and wow!
BTW, it got cold! Very cold! This little guy is great!
Update! The very nice people at Antique Appliances let me know we have a nice Frigidaire here–late 40s model, most likely 1948.
