And here's a view of the kitchen at the Municipal Lunatic Asylum in Herzberg, Germany, circa 1904.
In case you're wondering if I've gone off my rocker, let me explain why I picked this ad to post on this particular Flashback Friday. One: At over 100 years old, it more than meets the historical criterion. [Check out those boilers and caldrons!] Two: I depart for Deutschland in a matter of hours to soak up all that's new in the kitchen design world at the LivingKitchen trade show. Three: Trade shows and lunatic asylums have much in common.
I rest my case.
Remember to follow my tweets @kbculture for round-the-clock photos and updates from the show. Tschüss!
