in following Jon's great thread of's a video from 1952, not sure if the film is about electric appliances or a love story......but I was liking the size of that water heater...

I must be spending too much time in here - I don't know them all but here are my ideas

Vacuum Cleaner - Lewyt
Washer - Frigidaire
Fridge - guessing General Electric, I thought I saw the GE logo on the door
Electric sink - Hotpoint?
Mixer = Kitchen Aid -I thought that even before she switched it on.
Friends Washer/Dryer - that was easy - Westinghouse

I am a Brit, so dont expect model numbers LOLOL

The Iron

Is a Universal, the range a Crosley, those cabinets are either Geneva or St Charles steel with a woodgrain finish, that razor is a Schick...and those two are QUEENS!!!!!!

Love the comment the mother makes when loading the dishwasher, she'll put the deep well cooker in the next load.  As if that's really going to fit in that dishwasher.

come to think of it ....

there were appliances. The first thing I noticed was big booty Judy. I always dug bobbysoxer type chicks and how those old houses and kitchens were laid out and styled. I had to book mark that one for future reference.

Fridge- GE
Dishwasher- Hotpoint
Range- Crosley
Mixer- Kitchen Aide
Toaster- Sunbeam
Washer- Frigidaire
Washer- Westinghouse
Dryer- Westinghouse
Radio- RCA or Zenith?

I use a laundry cart almost like the one in the movie.

That is a riot, all the feigned emotion. 


yes those boys were too concerned about hot water together in the shower !!!


This is definitely all Electric living, and its a good thing Germany's Stellarator is passing its tests, we need more.
