It will give you a practical idea of the working arrangement of this kitchen.
It cannot show you the splendid dimensions of the large china cabinet on the right or
the complete equipment of the double-deck gas range just this side of the china cabinet. It
cannot portray the perfectly sanitary appearance given to the entire room by the wall covering
of sanitas that can be washed just like tile, and the real tile backing at the sink and drain board.
Nor can you get a comprehensive idea as to the spacious dimensions of the pantry, illuminated
as it is with a full length outside window and equipped with a modern refrigerator system for
perishables as well as innumerable shelves for groceries, etc. The illustration only suggests
the location of the extra collapsible preparation table and the immense double compartment
