For the final part of our ongoing Vintage Season, for this year anyway, we’ve dropped back to the 1950s (although one or two items might be just a little more 1960s). The short photo-essay pretty much spells out many women’s lot: ‘time saving cutting edge technology to ease their stay-at-home boredom’ and, just maybe, before the birth of Women’s Lib and women beginning to feel there might be just a little more to life before her pipe-smoking husband came home to listen to the game, just a tiny sense of sexual frustration on her separate single bed.
