Water Heater Ad
"A bath a day for everybody"
That's what the Pittsburgh Water Heater Co. recommends in this advertisement introducing a new consumer good to newspaper readers. Thanks to the company's Lion Automatic Storage System, "Plenty of hot water for a daily bath for every member of an average-size family is easily and cheaply provided." And--as the robed male figure in the ad can no doubt attest--the Lion Automatic" will heat a tankful of water as quickly as a man undresses."
||Norwegian mechanical engineer Edwin Ruud invented the automatic storage water heater in 1889.
