10 Strange house details from all over the world that actually have an explanation (10 pics)

We find it strange to see some details from homes around the world, probably because we have not seen them in our surroundings, or they are too old to be used. However, for some such inventions, it is really not clear to us why they existed when they did not have a great purpose and really do not make sense, while for some we say that they were really useful.

We present to you 10 strange home details that will surprise you.

1. This is a kind of “Microwave oven” from Europe at the beginning of the 20th century.

You will hardly be able to see radiators like this anywhere now, but they were very useful at the beginning of the 20th century in Europe, because people in them could, in addition to heating, also dry shoes or heat food.

2. In some houses in Russia, there is a seasonal fridge.

You can see these refrigerators in some houses that were made in the ’60s and are very useful during the winter season.

3. There are blocked-up windows on some buildings in the UK.

You can see these blocked-up windows on old buildings in the UK. In the 17th century, the British and the Scots had to pay taxes on the number of windows they had. Glass was very expensive then, and only rich people could have many glass windows. Those who did not pay taxes had to block up windows with bricks.
