The Gramophone

The gramophone was used to play music. You had to crank it up to make it work because there was no electricity. You put a sock into the horn to turn down the sound.

The Typewriter

The typewriter was made about 150 years ago. It was used to write words, sentences and stories. You would press the letters, then the hammer would hit the ribbon with ink on it and then it would go on the paper.


The Meat Safe

The meat safe was made out of metal or wood and had lots of holes around it. It was used to store food in. It would keep the food cool, fresh and safe from the insects and the animals. People would put a wet cloth around the top and sides of the meat safe. It would be placed somewhere that was cool.
