This is an Electrolux vacuum cleaner with all the attachments. You may wonder why a vacuum cleaner is part of our Social History collection, and it looks quite modern compared to some older types. Part of a museum’s obligation is to preserve history for future generations. While this generation may deem as unworthy of the care and preservation a museum provides for precious relics, in the distant future this particular vacuum cleaner may be valued as an important piece of our history. Therefore we treat every piece of our collection as precious, regardless of personal opinions, and we ensure in fifty years our collections are in good condition for the future to enjoy.
