1950'S KITCHEN

HERE IS ANOTHER GREAT 1950'S KITCHEN TO ADMIRE! NOTICE THE BEAUTIFUL & COOL FLOORING. SKYLIGHTS HAD BECOME MORE POPULAR TO USE IN RANCH HOUSES AT THAT TIME, ALTHOUGH I CAN'T TELL WHETHER THOSE WERE SKYLIGHTS OR JUST SHEETROCK WITH BEAMS. TO ADD TO THIS, I REALLY SWOON OVER THE OVEN & REFRIGERATOR! LAST BUT NOT LEAST, THE EVER SO POPULAR CRAZE WAS THE NEW ORANGE FORMICA COUNTERTOPS!
