We lived in a five room railroad for $30'00 a month. The landlord decided to install a gas refrigerator but told us it would cost $2.00 more if we wanted it. He was apologetic about it.We had a family meeting and agreed to go along. My brother & I were delighted because it meant we would no longer have to go to the iceman, drag a block of ice home and put it on the dumbwaiter and pull it up three flights of stairs.
