These marvellous heaters were made in my home town and were real life-savers (including mine) in the very cold winters before central heating became normal!
Although we have central heating, I have just bought one of these early Aladdins in near perfect condition for £65. They are brilliant for indoors or outbuildings.
£5.7s 6d was a great deal of money to pay for this stove in 1953 - an average week's wage!
