My mother took this photograph of my father washing me, in the kitchen sink, some time in 1955. That kitchen was one of many hundreds exactly like it in the Dogwood section of Levittown Pennsylvania. Both the sink and counter were stainless steel and the cabinets where white painted steel with stainless handles. Though it is hard to see the electric oven in the background, every kitchen got the same GE electric oven/range combo and refrigerator when they purchased the house. My parents added the work counter (on which my father has placed a towel, for drying me after my bath). Otherwise this kitchen is unchanged from when the house was built in 1953.
