A perfectly preserved 50's kitchen

A week ago I had a chance to visit a kitchen trapped in time. This kitchen is at St. Dominic’s Parish in Denver. Partially because they have taken such fabulous care of it and maybe because they haven’t done any upgrading, the kitchen is like walking back in time:

There are more photos on my flickr page…but I just thought it was fabulous (funny because the Sister there wasn’t really impressed at all when I raved about it). I love the 50’s stool at the end of the counter and you would be amazed at the condition of those counter tops. I bet the set of MadMen would love this to film scenes in (bigger than the one on that set too!).
