No Passport Required

Thanks for the invitation, Frigidaire. I've always [well...maybe not] yearned to inhabit such a vibrant, mixed-media world as this 1963 kitchen. While the Flair wall oven is the obvious star of the show, it's the Custom Imperial cooktop that triggered a double-take for me; the suggestion that its control panel be installed on the rear wall—out of the 'lil buckaroo's reach, we assume—is a novel one indeed.

I can't let this Flashback Friday post pass without noting the love-affair the copywriter was having with invented, hyphenated words. See-Level, Heat-Minder, Glide-Up—mind-boggling.
