Pioneer Village Kitchen, 1930, Minden, Nebraska

The second kitchen display is 40 years after the previous one shown, and illustrates the widespread availability of gas and electricity in this era.

Made by Dexter, West Nyack, N.Y.

The description states:


The housewife of 1930 had things very “modern” when the stove burned a natural gas flame. The iron and toaster were now electric. The 12 gauge shotgun was now automatic and the icebox electric. The phonograph came in a cabinet and the radio brought entertainment. The Singer Sewing Machine had a drop head, the telephone was improved with batteries inside and the sink had hot and cold running water. Electricity had come to America’s kitchens.

–This card likely dates from the 1960s.
