The Vacuum Cleaner: A History
House cleaning has been an innate human activity for centuries, but only since the early 19th century have mechanical devices replaced the physical hard labor (performed mostly by women). Mechanical carpet sweepers were replaced by manual suction cleaners, which in turn were replaced by electric vacuum cleaners in the early 20th century. Innovative inventors, who sequentially improved vacuum cleaners as electricity became commonly available, made these advances possible. Many early manufacturers failed, but some, such as Bissell, Hoover, Eureka, and others, became household words, as they competed for global dominance with improved features, performance, and appearance. This book describes the fascinating people who made this possible, as well as the economic, cultural, and technological contexts of their times. From obscure beginnings 200 years ago, vacuum cleaners have become an integral part of modern household culture.
The World’s Most Magnificent Vacuum Cleaner
It is ridiculous how much my 3 year old loves this book. He likes to discuss what is happening in the little yellow house on the corner of 6th and Poplar Street. And the vacuum hiding around the house gets him so excited. If your child loves vacuums, I definitely recommend this as an extension if that interest. It is fun (although a tad spooky – for me, not my son).

My Russian Grandmother and Her American Vacuum Cleaner: A Family Memoir
I enjoyed every word of this brilliant book. It is so human, so real. Meir Shalev always shows humour in his work but this book had me laughing our loud. And I loved the insight into the history of moshavim like Nahalal – the refusal to take money from a rich uncle and the uncle`s hilarious revenge; the gossip and the way the horse led the cart with the vacuum cleaner the long way round the circle of houses so that everyone would see and hear it. And also the pathos, the conflicts. I would recommend this book to everyone who who has a sense of humour and particularly those who have forgotten those pioneers who were the salt of the earth.
Vacuum Cleaners (Household History Series)
The book explains the formation of dust and various methods of removing it from our homes. It also teaches kids about dust mites and allergies, and emphasizes cleanliness. Obviously the accomplishments of the great H. Cecil Booth, the inventor of the first practical vacuum cleaner, and James Murray Spangler, the man who invented the beater bar (although it was originally a rotating brush made of goat hair) are highlighted. Also detailed are the rise of the mighty vacuum industrial giants, Hoover, Kirby, and the Swedish company Aktiebolaget Elektrolux, better known as Electrolux, the first manufacturer of the canister vacuum cleaner with wheels. Many novel vacuum cleaners get mention, including bellows powered models, and one powered by coal.
