Reminds me of hearing about how my great-grandmother thought that refrigerators preserved food forever… and her kids would have to surreptitiously throw out the food that had gone bad.
Ohhh, that faux-wood finish! My harvest gold stove has that on the control panel and, while I always felt it did lend my appliance a certain distinctive quality, “Space Age” has never leapt to mind. I think it’s a bit more Flintstones and Jetsons…
There are no words for her headgear except “awesome!”
Thanks for reminding me of that Cramps song. I’m sure it’ll be rattling in my head for the rest of the day… Still, you could do worse. Groovy ad, too…
Any opportunity for a reference to the Cramps is a good opportunity indeed!
Rest in peace, Lux!
I swear that dress is classic Rudi Gernsbach. Space 1999 a la mode!
Wow! That brings back memories from my childhood. We had this exact model. I loved that you could push the button and the door would pop open. Seemed so futuristic.
(psst, MadLibrarian – it’s Gernreich, not “Gernsbach”. [sic] transit gloria mundi, &c)
