    Interesting they were showing their gadgets to a man. He of course had the income to buy them, not the little woman at home.

    Drove to the house in an electric car, the past becomes the future. Note the direction the cords go, not down for the most part, but up, Used the old socket plugs to a lamp sconce, probably with a splitter. I have several of the bulb heaters, several GE fans, the exact model cigar lighter as well as another, the plugs and a few of the other items. Excellent video, just when electric was getting more popular and affordable to the middle class.

    The makers of the clip intended a display of the future, possibly unaware how the thing soon would become a glance into the past.

    Before the majority of people had electricity the house fires were caused by sparks coming from the fireplace and landing on the wood shingled roofs. Those houses went up in flames very quickly. My dad was born in 1942. He said before he was born sometime in the 30's that was how their house caught on fire. The cookstove also had a pipe through the roof and they could catch on fire the same way, because a lot of those old cookstoves were wood burning stoves. My dad's family didn't get electricity till the 50's.

    It sucks how GE appliances has basically become your run-of-the-mill crap nowadays (I think they sold their Appliance section off in the late 2000s). There is absolutely no innovation anymore.

    The fact they have a maid to vacuum, iron, serve dinner and tend to a sick child really says a lot about the class of people that could even afford these things.

    Wondering to myself how these people would react if they walked into a modern home. Would they have the slightest clue how to do anything or would they be completely lost?

    If this is 1915, and the electric family is reasonably comfortable, they sure had a crappy car – by '15 it would have been one of those enclosed phone booth models (and it would have been more likely used by the wife, though granted those families were a notch or two above this one)

    My Grandmother was born in 1915 and is still alive and well, doesnt even look 90. She just celebrated her 105th Birthday September 26. She would remember these things, a few years later but this is amazing.
