BUSTLER (STICK) VACUUM CLEANER, 1930
The 'stick' upright cleaner was a popular format in the 20's and 30's. It was cheaper and lighter, though lower-powered, that larger cleaners. The 'Bustler' was a popular British model which was available well into the 1950s.

Best described as an 'electric broom', the motor, fan chamber and bag were all mounted on the handle, with only the nozzle in contact with the floor.

If you want to see one visit the back to back houses in Hurst street, Birmingham (national trust) where you will find one in the top floor of house number 3 (George Mitchell's house).
