GE Kitchens Are Next To Godliness

The cover of God In My Kitchen: Fifty-Two Thoughts For Homemakers, by Dorothy C. Haskin. (I’m giving one away in this contest! Or you can find it on Amazon.)

In the acknowledgements:

The kitchen shown on the cover was designed by Home Guide Inc., using General Electric appliances. We are indebted to these organizations for the picture.

Personally, I never got over that documentary we were shown in collage. Ever since then, whenever someone says “GE” or “General Electric,” I scream, “Babies born without skulls!” …I guess that’s one type of atomic kitchen.

Modern Woman Monday: The Airplane Exercise

A purely gratuitous photo of three women doing the airplane exercise pose in. Just too classic to ignore.

(Found in 1962’s Royal Canadian Air Force Exercise Plans for Physical Fitness; more images there.)
