Notice the individual cabinet like doors on the refrigerator and the swinging drawer at bottom. Most units were belt driven external drive in this book. There was extensive use of flooded evaporators with low side floats at this time. I bought two editions of this book. I hope to get them scanned into pdf and share.  Also of note, a late 20’s book on Ice Manufacture and the use of Cork Insulation.  3 Pictures describe and show the Savage mercury compressor; an oddity I’ve seen little of before.
