Just in time for your last minute Christmas shopping, here's Alva Day's store window at Pacific Power on Third and Oak. With so many homes getting electricity, the power company needed to make a concerted effort to promote consumption of all those newly generated kilowatts. I can pick out coffee urns, waffle makers, toasters, a heater, electric blanket, irons, a vacuum cleaner, lots of electric clocks, chafing dishes, and hotpots. Your Monday Mystery task is an easy one-- find those items in the picture.
A few prices: $5.95 for an electric blanket, $8.80 for an iron, $19.50 for a coffee urn, and a waffle iron set on special at $8.95.
Good luck with your last minute shopping, and Happy Holidays to all from Historic Hood River.

I see the toaster!! I know, because we had one like that. You stood the slice of bread up. It toasted on one side and then you turned the slice over and toasted the other. I remember lots of burnt toast.
Same to you charlott and to everyone else. Be safe and have a wonderful day tomorrow.

I found all of them. We still use Christmas ornaments similar to the ones shown that belonged to my wife's grandmother. We haven't saved any icicle foil tinsel though.

We had a toaster like that, too. When you opened the door, the slice of toast slid down onto the door, toasted side down, so when you closed the door again, the untoasted side faced the coils. Modern, no need to touch the hot toast. I had totally forgotten about that old toaster.
