At The library of vanished sounds, it was the Grandmother Clock ticking and striking (found under Various) that struck home.
via I like, there are some good clips at BBC 4's The Lost Decade, but I took a diversion to the 1950's Home style and got lost in the 1950's kitchens at the Museum of Modern Design
I think I would find so many cupboards quite stunning
and New! Parakeets Available...Parakeets rest on your finger and sing to you
That 'stunning' kitchen has really odd perspective else that's the smallest mixmaster I've ever seen.
No, it's odd.

Oh yes I see what you mean.
I thought it was the 50's geometrical thing happening but no, the walls are falling in...
Might think the yellow wallcupboard syndrome, but it looks too amusing. Like the after coffee entertainment.

I was thinking that it's like vortexvision, the homogenized vanilla virgin 50s vista. Our kitchens (and our decade) will warp your space-time continuum.

heh. Now that's some understated prose!

btw - this is actually the kitchen my blue canisters and I would prefer:
looks fairly stable in comparison to the (canary) yellow...give or take a few onions?

Just needs a preening skirt wearer and a gun chef ;-)

Perhaps that's why Len D was armed.
In case the cupboards advanced?

ok, that made me laugh.

Whilst cleaning out the shed today I came across a bunch of reasonably well preserved 1950s- 1960's Australian Picture and Post Magazines.
Are you a collector Mrs Boynton? If you would look after them I could arrange to lend them to you for a long lend.

Used to collect magazines of that era- but not Picture and Post. Sounds fab! A short lend would be wonderful.
(Mrs? are you having a lend of me, FX?
Usually ms, though I'm still so amiss, but might accept 'reasonably well preserved')
