Another page from Home Ec. History

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.

vintage teacher resource

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.
