(Editor’s note: Zoom in to read this advertisement from the sponsorship section of “P.T.A. Interpretations of Food,” a cookbook owned by Marion Reynolds King that was published in 1928 and passed along to us — held together with plenty of duct tape — by Sonny King.

It reads: “For Electricity comes to the humble home as well as to the palace … just as clean, just as powerful, just as willing to work. ELECTRICAL appliances have as their sole duty the alleviation of laborious tasks, making of happier homes and better homes. They are ready to do your bidding; sweep the rug, cool the kitchen, cook your dinner, brew your coffee, press your clothes. NO housewife should do work that a little electric motor will do for a few cents an hour; no home is complete without its share of electric servants.”)
