Carpet sweeper, c1900s

Carpet sweeper, c1900s. A startled insect hurries to escape from a woman using a carpet sweeper, which the insect has confused with an automobile. This type of carpet sweeper was invented by Melville and Anna Bissell in 1876. As it is pushed along, the wheels of the carpet sweeper rotate a brush underneath. This dislodges the dirt from the carpet and sweeps it inside. The Bissells went on to build a factory in Grand Rapids, Michigan in the US in 1883. Their sweeper was introduced into Britain in 1887.
