Couple of inaccuracies… not being picky… just for the record….
#1 we did have air conditioning… it was evaporative AC at least in TX. Yes not your traditional coolant AC… but evaporative made the heat bearable.
#2: penicillin was discovered by Alexander Fleming in 1929 but was not commercially available.. Florey and Chain developed a method to grow the mold in broth in 1939 (before had to be grown only on a surface). Broth culture made mass production possible. All 3 shared the 1952 Nobel Prize for their efforts. Penicillin became commercially available in 1942-43 but was reserved for only the troops in WWII due to limited production. After the war, it was commercially available for many Drs. but I'm sure some may not have had access.
#3 I thought the British developed the first practical radar in WWII ? is that accurate ?
#4 they HAD dishwashers before 1954… earlier models were called "husbands"… later models were mechanical !!
yeah I still do the dishes by hand too..of course I only have one glass plate, one place setting of silver ware, and one cup..oh and one frying pan and a small pot.
I do run across an evaporator A/C unit for cars every once in a while....clipped to the passenger front window, fill with ice...not dry ice...and it worked just fine, here was a model that sat over the transmission hump, with a fan to force the air around..it worked too.

Wow, woW. Really? Never have seen one in cars. I believe you but never knew the "technology" was applied to cars.
There are dealers who sell reproductions for antique car builders, simple to use, a round shell, clips over a closed window, fill the shell with ice, or water. the better ones have a fan to help move the air around inside the car. the ones that fit inside the car use the same technology, and of course there are the water bags that people in desert areas use top hang on the front of the car near the radiator. have to use water ice, dry ice will replace air with co2 and put you out when all the breathable air is gone. http://www.treehugger.com/corporate-resp...-mcfarland.html
