Shorpy Saturday – Frigidaire: 1941

By Jeffrey Buck

I’d say the temperatures outside these last couple of weeks could be compared to what it would feel like to spend a day in a 1941 Frigidaire model. A salesman would have to do a lot today to sell someone a fridge without an automatic ice maker. What is your favorite fridge “feature” that you could not live without?

Take a look at the photograph entitled “Frigidaire: 1941“:

FSA/8d25000/8d253008d25343a.tif

July 1941. “Detroit, Michigan. Buying a refrigerator at the Crowley-Milner department store.” Here we see Mr. Salesman explaining the ice maker, which employs a “tray.” Large-format negative by Arthur S. Siegel.
