Writing a short story for another LJ community, set in urban London in 1951. Most of the action takes place in an upper-middle class home and while I've double and triple-checked most of my other details to solidify accuracy, I can't seem to pin down whether or not refrigerators were common enough in England during for the story's family to have one. Wikipedia makes it seem like the answer's no but other sites are saying maybe and I just know (despite being a minor detail) that it's going to bother me until I've got a surer answer.
Is there a refrigerator historian in the house? XD
