In the 1950s, the Star-Telegram published several stories about Fort Worth’s most modern, stylish kitchens of the day.
Wow, have the times changed. Most of these kitchens appear to be smaller than some walk-in closets in new homes today. An “electric dishwasher” was a sign of 1950s upscale convenience. And then there’s ALL that wood paneling.
