Our Princeton, New Jersey house was built for us in the spring of 1962. On the weekends we made trips to see the progress of the build (seen here) and finally moved into it on July 30, 1962. As in our Levittown house, my brother was bathed in the kitchen sink. (You have to get down on your hands and knees to wash a baby in a bath tub. It is much nicer to be able to stand up for that task.) Here he sits, in a towel, ready for that bath. The kitchen was decorated in pseudo-rustic farmhouse style. It was yellow with brown fixtures. You can see the front panel of the brown dish washer at lower left. The kitchen cabinets were knotty pine with brass faux-hammered handles. My mother made window shades from a yellow chicken-and-nest fabric with a brown pom-pom border on the bottom. My mother loved home decorating as much as she loved designing and making clothes. | Click image for Comments. | Home | Browse All Photos
