THRILLS!!!

(promotional booklet frigidaire food freezers 1949)

why yes, there are thrills in the exciting world of freezing! that is if and only if you have a Frigidaire Food Freezer. "Many people think that they must buy a side of beef--or raise a garden to justify the use of a Food Freezer. Nothing could be further from the truth. There are many, many everyday uses for the Frigidaire Food Freezer." next listed within the booklet are easy items to freeze such as juice and of all things... ice cubes!


and one last word...
"remember freezing will retain the original quality of the food, but it will not improve it!"

so don't go thinking that stomach turning pasta dish you couldn't even talk the dog into will get any better after a few months on ice.

Hi Mary! I don't know if you got my email, but we've started a group on flickr inspired by your work (I've even credited you in our description!), and we wish you'd come back!

Happy new year, anyway, hope all is well with you! :-)
