Royal is credited with inventing the vacuum cleaner in 1905 {P.A. Geier Co., Cleveland, OH} - but there was an earlier mechanical vacuum cleaner patented in 1869. In 1908, Hoover started building their "Model O" which was the first electric vacuum cleaner -- it weighed about 40 pounds. Eureka started in 1909 and Kirby started in the 1920's
