memory flash back- the vacuum


photo from here
Quotes heard in our house, circa 1970's:

" Don't stand on the power head, you'll break it!"
" Don't stand on the hose, you'll break it!"
" Don't ride on the canister!"
" Don't try to vacuum up THAT ...pick it up with your hand!"
" Has any one seen the ______ attachment?"
" I thought we still had one more sweeper bag!"

Electrolux.
I grew up with this vacuum. Anyone else?

my daughter may have grown up with a Rainbow but my mom had that electrolux. she always believe in buying good vacuums and would run them at three in the morning. I kid you not!
