Trivia Tuesday ~ Toast on wheels

Trivia Tuesday ~ Toast on wheels

No it’s not actually toast on wheels.  But it IS Trivia Tuesday!  So the question is, “Where did the idea for a toaster originate?”.

The first “automatic” turnover toaster was patented in 1914 by Lloyd Copeman.  The patent, however, is held by his wife Hazel B. Copeman.  It is believed that his wife wanted a better way to toast the bread and asked her husband, Llyod, if there was a better way to do it.  From there history was in the making.

Turn the toast please
