Progress sucks: Daisy Vacuum Cleaner

From Michael Williams.  Curiosities of Cornwall.  (Cornwall:  Bossiney Books, 1983).  The vacuum cleaner is on display at the North Cornwall Museum and Gallery in Camelford, north Cornwall, England.  Unlike the Daisy, Booth's machine was a large, gasoline-powered device drawn by horses, using large hoses drawn through the windows of the house being cleaned.
