Archive film of a 1930s Kitchen
The 1930s kitchen was a middle class phenomenon – bright colourful designs that heralded a new era
for the modern woman. It was the age of the ‘ Fitted Kitchen’ – a big move away from the old free standing kitchen style.
Jadeite green was very popular color and is often seen now in retro kitchenware and appliances.
Popular magazines that featured kitchen designs included Ladies Home Journal and Amercian Home.
This archive film clip comes from a Home Expo held in 1938 and was watched in cinemas across the USA.
