35 Candid Snapshots of Women in the Kitchen in the 1960s and 1970s

In the 1960s and 1970s, the wife would be seen as the stay at home keeping the house in order, bear children and make sure everything was fit for her husband to come home to. The impression was the man was the one who did the proper work, the wife didn’t, just spend all her time making everything right.

Many of them did not have automatic dishwashers, microwaves, etc. None of them had online bill paying, ATM cards, and many of the conveniences of today. Having a cleaning service was unheard of. Most had more children then many women today. But yet they managed to cook actual homecooked meals, tend to children, do laundry, wash floors, garden, clean the house, etc.

  1. Every single one of these brings me back to my childhood. I love looking at the little details: what's on the stove? what's on the table? do I recognize that wall hanging?
