Breakfast-in-a-box: In the late nineteenth century, the overfed women and men of America's Gilded Age had digestive problems. One of their chief problems was constipation. John Harvey Kellogg, a doctor at Battle Creek Sanatorium, and his brother William set up a lab to develop high-fibre foods. They came up with a technique to take soaked corn kernels, crush them flat and toast them. The result was the first cornflakes. (The brothers Kellogg also developed All-Bran)
Gas Station, c.1950 - aaaaah yes....those were the days!!! You just sat in your car and the nice attendant did all the work....not only pumped your gas, but checked your oil, and cleaned your windows....dirty or not!! And if you asked...they would check your air pressure and put the air in your tires too if needed. Can you imagine....those were the days my friend...
This reminds me of my sisters and I during our early teen and preteen days. There are five girls in this photo which is suiting because we always had a special friend around.
"A kiss for a gas cook! It's the exact temperature control that's the secret of cooking by gas. Light a burner and it gives full heat instantly; turn the visible flame up or down and the change of heat is immediate. ..." (1950s)
