Historical Minute - February 2013

“The Crosley Corp. has introduced a Shelvador electric refrigerator model equipped with a built-in radio.

“It has been said that sixty percent of a housewife’s time is spent in the kitchen working. Now by having a Shelvador refrigerator with a radio built in its top, she may listen to the programs she wants. Most radios are placed in the living room which is two or three rooms away from the kitchen, and the housewife either has to miss the program when she is in the kitchen or turn up the radio in the living room so loud that it will ordinarily drive everyone out of the house.”

—“What’s Going on in the Mechanical Refrigerator Field,” Ice and Refrigeration, May 1937.
