Don is a toaster nut. He sent me a few photos. This first one is his everyday toaster. He says it’s a Toastmaster Model 1A6 (ca. 1953). Don’t you just love the chrome.  One of the saddest days of my life was when they stopped making chrome car bumpers. If you remember it was (so they said) to support the independence of what was then Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe. Most of the chromium comes from there. So why didn’t they start buying it after the country became independent?

This beauty is a General Electric Toaster and Toaster Oven Combination from the late-1940s

Perfect condition. And this one is the rarest of his collection. It’s the “Sweetheart” manufactured in 1929 by Landers, Frary, & Clark.

You can even work it while you’re holding your IPhone. Thanks, Don.
