Shire Publications ‘The 1950s Kitchen’

Coincidentally just after mentioning the ‘Too Many Gadgets’ tea towel yesterday, I received details of retro-themed publisher Shire's latest publication, ‘The 1950s Kitchen’.

The 1950s was the decade when the kitchen as we now know it came into being, with fitted units and those all important labour-saving appliances. The 64-page book looks at the idea of the kitchen as the heart of the home, as well as chapters on the fitted kitchen, colours and materials, appliances and gadgets and 1950s food.

Buy it directly from Shire, priced £6.99.
