Grandma's Kelvinator

My grandparents built a new kitchen in 1950 and got their first refrigerator.  It was a Kelvinator brand.  It said "Kelvinator" right on the front, so that's what they called it.  They called EVERY refrigerator the Kelvinator.  As a kid, I had to learn their lingo!

Here's my grandmother, Nora Bessie McNeil Snyder (1900 - 1992) of Millers Creek, Wilkes County, NC with a Kelvinator. She was surprised to have her photo taken! 

I love these old photos showing everyday life instead of everyone always in their Sunday best.  She's wearing a house dress which was her normal attire Monday through Saturday.
