    1930's kitchen with phone. Our only phone was also in the kitchen. Where was yours?

    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."
