‘New’ fridge

Yesterday I picked up my ‘new’ fridge. It’s an original 1950s Electrolux that I got on eBay for a mere $11.51! It is a lot bigger than I expected. I’m pretty sure the seller said that it was only 600 high, but it is almost chest height to me! Maybe he was measuring in inches!

Anyway, it needs some work. It’s very dirty and doesn’t run at the correct temperature. Below are some of the photos I have taken.
