1910 Kitchen Scene, Pioneer Village, Minden Nebraska

Another view of the extraordinary range and number of items in the museum exhibits, this is a turn of the 20th century scene, although a bit more cluttered than was likely for pioneers on the frontier.

Dexter Press, West Nyack, N.Y.

The description states:

THE KITCHEN OF 1910

The stove, with reservoir and warming closet, has by now replace the crude fireplace of 1830, the sewing machine has replaced the spinning wheel, the graphophone has replaced the zither, and the Aladdin Lamp has replaced the crude grease lamp of less than a century before. Man’s progress from 1830 to 1950 is truly amazing when we see how our forefathers lived.

— And foremothers, judging by the mannequin chosen to occupy the room. The description directly indicates this card dates from the 1950s.
