Boo! Part 3
The big day is fast approaching—and you're still undecided about what to wear? Perhaps dressing up as an appliance [small electric or major, your choice] will make you the belle of the masquerade ball. At the Los Angeles Electrical Age Exposition, held in 1936, these lovelies embodied modern domestic conveniences with, if not grace, certainly good humor. Love the balloon bubbles capping the washing machine in the top row. Oh, Miss Range—I think your hip is done.
