Young Man’s Fancy

Electricity: too cheap to meter!

If they could afford all the fancy electric appliances, why can't they afford separate kitchen and laundry rooms?

Who in '52 would watch a 30 minute advertisement?

Where would they watch it? At the movies, since there are no colour TV's?

So many questions, I feel the need to NOT know the answers to.

BMN - an answer even though you don't want to know it. Having the washer/dryer in the kitchen was considered a desirable "time-saver" for the housewife, who wouldn't even have to leave the kitchen to launder hubby's tighty-whiteys while in the midst of cooking dinner for him. I don't think they ever asked a housewife about it, but the male architects seemed to like the idea. Personally, the idea of dirty laundry next to the food prep area makes me gag. Hubby's aunt and uncle had this in their house and I always hesitated to eat if I knew the laundry was in process.
