feeling fifties

To this day my grandmother claims the best gift she was ever given was an Acme nappy wringer in 1956. No more boiling nappies in a copper pot, this modern invention changed her life forever. While I can't see the nappy wringer making a comeback, plenty of other household goodies from the fifties are, such as trusty wood veneer, the new canvas for many retro design houses and illustrators, including Pop Ink  (below) and Cabin and Cub.(above) Get your Mr Sheen ready to polish these babies for years to come!
