When was the first kitchen sink?
During the early 1800s, our first kitchen sinks involved a process of pumping water from supply tanks or wells and collecting it in bowls, which were placed into dry sinks made of metal troughs and built into wooden cabinets.
What was the first sink invented?
“Hurrian Hymn No. 6” is considered the world’s earliest melody, but the oldest musical composition to have survived in its entirety is a first century A.D. Greek tune known as the “Seikilos Epitaph.” The song was found engraved on an ancient marble column used to mark a woman’s gravesite in Turkey.
What were sinks originally made for?
They were originally designed for comfort; for women who spent long hours at the sink, ergonomics were important – the apron front’s forward orientation eliminated the countertop that caused them to lean forward and strain more than necessary.
When did Alfred Moen invent the sink?
He devised it in 1937 while he was a college student after burning his hands with hot water from a conventional two-handle faucet, according to Moen Inc. His namesake company makes faucets, kitchen sinks and plumbing specialty-products and was headquartered in Elyria until moving its offices to North Olmsted.
