Fight Against Maturity

Like the man said, “They don’t make them like they used to.”

Britain’s oldest fridge is showing no signs of freezing up anytime soon – after 58 years of continuous use.

Retired piano teacher Doris Stogdale bought the General Electric fridge when she and her family lived in what is now Malaysia in 1952.

Mrs Stogdale, 89, of Oxford, recalls that it cost the equivalent of £135 – and has never needed any maintenance or even a single new part.
