Another great find at a garage sale to add to my collection of old books, cookbooks, and magazines.
Take a little peak into a woman's life in 1959 from a McCall's magazine.
An electric range with a pull-out oven, for easier cleaning. That sounds like a great idea!

"Let's Eat a Real Breakfast" article. A doctor recommends eating a full, well-balanced breakfast to prevent hypoglycemia, mid-morning fatigue, dizziness, and fainting. He suggests that protein be included instead of common breakfasts of just toast, juice, and coffee. (still good advice today.) I certainly hope that the photo included shows a wide range of breakfast choices, not just one breakfast!
Hmmm . . . now that's an interesting-looking dinner!
"A Wonderful Way to Live" - McCall's 1959 Idea House
Our house was built in 1960. Some scary similarities, like paneling that we painted over, and bathroom tile although ours is a more neutral color palette, thank goodness. That tile is still in good shape (what kind of amazing mortar and grout did they use back then?), it's going to take some elbow grease when we rip it out someday!
