When they are uploaded directly to this site, they should display for everyone. I have uploaded this photo, which can be viewed by clicking the thumbnail if the first image doesn't display for you. -- Ken Anderson

    I'm sorry, Ken. Apparently since I got a red warning, I'm the worst culprit. :( I did see your message about that the first time you posted it, and have been trying to upload, instead of link, since then, but a handful of images just aren't as impressive squeezed down. Won't do it again.

    No, no. Not a warning at all. I just didn't want you wondering what the thumbnail image was all about, knowing that you hadn't put it there.

    The washing up area in the kitchen... the sinks are really deep, and in those days the average woman was only about 5 feet tall so the kitchen maids would have suffered from very painful backs.. ...plus those copper pots are HUGE... the photo doesn't really show the enormous size of the kitchen

    They had no fridges or freezers, so they kept everything cold in the pantry which has stone she;ves and flooring...

    [​IMG] this food is fake btw... but it's even realistic to look at close up...

    Ours was in the dining room.

    Today mine is in my pocket.

    I always admired houses that had these little telephone niches, usually in a front hall.

    We have a corded wall phone between the dining room and the kitchen. It has a 25 foot cord on it. When our middle daughter was 16, and on the phone a lot, she had a call that required privacy and was stretched out all the way to the kitchen door. When her call was "cut off" she thought someone hung up the phone. The cord, was touching a burner on the electric stove and both the cord and Susie were a little "Hot around the caller"!;)

    A colorful mid-century kitchen tableau, set amid the first faint stirrings and beatings and whirrings of the Tupperware era.

    I used to see those long corded phones , (which always seem to be situated on the kitchen wall)...on American TV sitcoms when I was a kid...I used to wish we could have one of those.... pretty much the pre-runner to the cordless, in that you could walk from one room to another, but sadly I think only America had them!!...even as late as the 80's they still had one in the Golden Girls...

    Earl Tupper, who invented Tupperware, with it's patented burping seal. :oops:

    [​IMG]

    "It was his business partner, Brownie Wise, who came up with the idea for the Tupperware Home Parties that became wildly popular in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Tupper fired her in 1958 ... then proceeded to divorce his wife, sell his company, abandon his citizenship, buy an island, and move to Costa Rica where he could live out his days without paying U.S. taxes. He died in 1983."
