1955 Dream Kitchen video
Have you all seen this? I went hunting for "retro kitchen" and up it popped. Humorous video (13 min long) credited to A Woman's Home Companion. Features steel cabinets, Formica, a pass-through wall cabinet and a young Darren McGavin. Also some antiquated ideas about who gets to decide how the kitchen is going to be arranged, so all y'all whose non-cooking partners keep getting in the way of your designs can tell them they are about 60 years behind the times. lol. (There is a little of that going on here too so I sympathize, though it's more the Fact Of and the expense than the layout that is the sticking point.)
All these old kitchen photos and videos seem to be advertisements for something or other, but I still have fun looking at them. :) And I wouldn't mind that steel kitchen either (except it needs some venting).
p.s. I do notice that in the video, instead of renovating the kitchen, they just got a whole new house instead. ha!
