Kitchen Stories

Recollections of This Fathers’ Day

There was a time before kitchens had mood lighting and islands with tall stool seats and appliances with digital readouts. The kitchen was the nexus of family life where everyone gathered for a sit-down breakfast together. A table model radio had its place against the wall.

Hunter Green dominated such rooms in those ’50s and ’60s era styles.
