    Default 108-year-old vacuum cleaner rescued from the scrap heap and it STILL WORKS





    It was the year a young Winston Churchill joined the Liberals and Salvador Dali was born.

    But 1904 was also the year this aluminum American Sturtevant vacuum cleaner No. 4 was made to help bring advances to the cleaning world.
    And incredibly, the 108 year old hoover was still working when nostalgic collector Harry Cox, 53, rescued it from a scrap yard during a clear-out at the family-owned paper mill where he works in Salford, Greater Manchester.
    The vacuum still even had its the original accessories including wall brushes, floor tools, blowing nozzles, and upholstery tool intact.

    It must weigh a lot. Whoa! What a great find, though. Fix it up and you might get a pretty penny for it.

    Yeah seriously. I'm sick of having stores full of Chinese crap that works for 3 months then breaks.
    White people can build something that lasts for a century.

    It's lasted longer than anything you'd find in your neighborhood Chinese Thrift Store, 'Walmart'!
