wonder what the switch on the front by the door is for?

Nice screw driver selector hangle.

Switch On Front

Turns on the electrically lit pilot light, you turned it on at the start of laundry day and turned it off when you were done to save gas.


I think they were also reducing wear on the ignition system by not making it go through the ignition sequence every time the dryer called for heat.


 They only did this on their first two model gas dryers, this dryer was their 2nd gas dryer model, it was built from about 1950-52.

Nice looking dryer

I like the rib up the center front, it adds style (and looks similar to the chrome rib up the center of the 1941 Frigidaire refrigerator that was posted recently).
