Tell It Like It Was

OK, let's review this 1960 advertisement point-by-point. 'Neat': No. Unless you have a thing for control panels that are remote from the appliance they are supposed to control. [Look closely to the left of the range and you'll spot it, rising up incongruously from the butcher block.]

'Sweet': Yes! Pink and white brick—what's not to love?

And finally, 'Smart': Thumbs down on this claim, at least as illustrated here. A 27-inch range should fit into odd, remnant spaces, and yet here, at the end of an improbable peninsula, it seems there's all the room in the world for a stove of any size.
