The look of the American kitchen in the 30s was very different than the shape it had taken in the postwar years.

The modernized kitchen and bath became the domestic status symbols, where the housewife exercised her taste and power when determining the look of the rooms and the choice of appliances. Here are a couple of images from the story Life Magazine ran in 1943 about the Kitchen of Tomorrow exhibit presented in Toledo, Ohio. In retrospect, they may have gotten it wrong.
