Kelvinator Electric Refrigerator. [Salesman’s folding display portfolio]

A total of 18 large 8 x 10 prints—most in color and taken from photographs, some actual photographs—all pitching the Yukon refrigerator built by this Michigan company. A repeatedly-used background image shows two buildings, perhaps from the Detroit skyline with one housing the Kelvinator Corporation’s headquarters.

This portfolio is unrecorded in OCLC and its rarity is due to its manufacture being solely for selling agents. The accordion-styled binding is such that 9 images can be displayed on each side. The portfolio could be stood up on edge for a dimensional display.

Kelvinator’s refrigerators were featured at the 1939–1940 World’s Fair Exposition in New York in the “Town of Tomorrow” exhibition.
