Britain’s oldest fridge?

Britain’s oldest fridge?

A County Durham farmer’s wife reckons she has Britain’s oldest fridge – a 77-year-old Electrolux. The 4ft fridge, which she bought secondhand for £7.50 in 1969, has a manufacturer’s stamp showing it was made in 1931, reports The Sun.

Maureen Mace, 60, of Esh, County Durham said: “I keep waiting for it to break down but it doesn’t – it just goes on and onThey built things to last in those days. The seals had to be replaced once, but apart from that it hasn’t given us any trouble. It’s even got the same light bulb.”
