Summary

This book delves into the early days of electrical appliance development when many novel and little known appliances were made. The manufacture and operation of some of these inventions encountered seemingly insurmountable problems at the time - the first toaster, for example, would often shoot the toast high into the air, and the toast was occasionally on fire - but many are now revived in some of the latest appliances we use today. This is an ideal one-stop informative book which looks at every aspect of early electrical appliances, from the Harness electropathic corset and head-ache curing electric hairbrush of the Victorian fashion world to the tea parties at which guests watched vacuum-cleaning displays.
