The Fridgidaire

Fridgidaire was a brand name for electric refrigerators - I don't remember that we ever used the word "refrigerator" - it was always "the fridge". This ceramic jug with cork lined stopper, came with Mom and Dad's first "Fridgidaire" refrigerator purchased in the early 1940's. Mom used it to keep milk in, direct from the cows that were milked morning and night. Having cows, pigs, and chickens was a normal sight on almost all farms in those days. They were not only a source of income, they were a source of food for the family. Milking, gathering eggs, feedings - all twice daily chores in fair and foul weather !
