Red, White and Blue

Should stormy weather spoil your plans for a Fourth of July barbecue—and I certainly hope it doesn't, dear readers—let's trust you have a suitably patriotic kitchen to which to retreat. To take shelter in this space, we'll need to go back to 1966, a time when colors were bold, the microwave oven had yet to be realized, and photo styling was a nascent art form. To that last point, it looks to me like the side panel of the fridge has been fudged; surely only the front of the appliance would have been given the royal-red treatment. And what of the dishwasher? An opportunity missed.
