|This looks like fun to drag around the house. This is an ad for Booth's Vacuum Cleaner 1906. Picture came from |
|And they were marketing only to women and as a gift...hmmm.....why? wasn't on my birthday list. And Vacuuming in a dress and pumps...ouch!|
Now here's a cool old ad from www.vacuumland.org which will take you to more interesting old Vacuum ads and Vacuum history.
And for more reading pleasure that explains some of the history of the Vacuum, go to About.com. Did you know the first attempt to create a vacuum was in the late 1500's! Really!
Think of all the hair, dirt, dust and junk our Vacuums suck up in a year. I have hardwood floors and I Vacuum the floors, Vacuum the couch, Vacuum the cobwebs off the wall (with the attachments of course) and I would Vacuum my dog if she would just sit still long enough and cooperate. She is shedding like crazy.
Do you have any interesting Vacuum stories? Vacuum facts? Something your Vacuum ate that was not on the menu and you had to dig it out of the dust and crud to recover? Do you own a Vacuum or do you just sweep the old fashioned way? Do you have a new fangled, robot Vacuum that just runs around your house? Have you figured out a way to Vacuum a shedding dog that will not have calls rushing in to the SPCA?
Hope you had a Very, Very wonderful V day!
