My mother doing the dishes (with earrings and a piece of candy) in the knotty pine kitchen of our Guernewood Park, California summer place in June 1963. Note the items then regarded as fit only for vacation home use but now either antiques or retro: genuine cracked ice pattern Formica and chrome table with matching chairs; set of floral pattern tumblers (can't remember if they were glass or plastic); ceramic teapot wall pocket; incredibly neat ceramic 8-day clock. In the window: large ceramic squash-shaped shaker and a carnival ware tumbler. Not shown: the dirty look she gave me after hearing me snap off this Kodachrome slide. | Click image for Comments.
