Friday plans include a cold beverage? Meet the beer fridge
It’s from a catalog of by L. H. Mace & Co. of New York,
now in our @smithsonianlibraries. Early refrigerators used insulation (with an
inch between two sets of walls) and circulation to move cool air from the ice
chamber throughout the space.
Inside this refrigerator, there were places for kegs to rest
and shelves in the lower part of the refrigerator could be removed, making it
possible to chill two more kegs.
