PERMANENT SILENCE!
When owners of the Gas Refrigerator —
Electrolux—are enthusiastic enough to predict:
“It’s the refrigerator EVERYBODY eventually will
own,” there must be a reason! The lasting satisfaction'
which Electrolux owners experience can be traced to
the fact that Electrolux has NO MACHINERY —which
means NO VIBRATION, PERMANENT SILENCE, a
minimum of depreciation! These basic advantages,
found only in Electrolux, mean long life and.lasting
efficiency. And Electrolux gives you every other worth
while convenience you’d expect in the most modem
refrigerator. No wonder owners recommend it! See
Electrolux at our showrooms, or call District 8500
and ask for fully illustrated folders.
