The best thing since... what?

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

IN Tot­ter­ing-by-gen­tly, An­nie Tem­pest raises a very in­ter­est­ing ques­tion: ‘What was the best thing be­fore sliced bread?’ (Jan­uary 18). The first ma­chine to slice bread was in­vented in Amer­ica in 1928 by a jew­eller, Otto Fred­er­ick Ro­hwed­der. Two years later, UK bak­eries started pro­duc­ing sliced loaves, so we’d have to go back a long time. Per­haps the in­ven­tion of elec­tric­ity was the best thing be­fore sliced bread, but your read­ers might have other ideas. Ve­rina Pet­ti­grew, Hert­ford­shire
