This is another page from the 1944 Home Ec. books I found. This shows the progression of the electric stove. Is Westinghouse still in business? I would love to find one of the first model's in working order. I would definitely be "vintage" then.
I have had these GREAT teacher tesource magazines for almost 25 years. They came from the old high school where I graduated, in the old Home Ec. department. I love cuddling up with them on a cold winters evening and perusing all the vintage hair, clothes, recipes and just neat stuff. I always find something I hadn't noticed before. They are bound editions of "What's Up i Home Economics?" I have copies from 1942-1945. I've learned alot about how our country dealt with the times, you know victory Gardens and stuff like that. They constantly remind the teachers to be encouraging and keep everyone in a positive frame of mind. So much of what we need now.
