Such an informative video!
6 seconds is ultimate especially for "room" photos…alot going on for details…question… i saw laminate floors….when did that start to look "like rugs/tile/ designs. how long has it been made…. orginally ..before they started with designs in it? is that a transfer to the laminated table / chairs in the 40/50? art deco? great video as always ;];];] love this process of history;];];]
I was born in 1940 in a rural area. We lived next door to the community telephone office The operator was a blind man & handled the switchboard like a pro. If a message came in for someone he would have to get a person to bring them to the phone office. Different but it worked.
Thank you for showing your stove. Love it!
Wow Darling that stove!!! Oh my goodness it’s beautiful ♥️thank you for sharing pics and info.
By the way, I think 3 seconds is fine for the pictures because I take still shots if I want to look at them longer.
Parlor was also where the dead is laid for visitation. Sitting up with the dead.
Hi 🙂 .I mean so much from U. I r fun to watch!
I do like 6 second on the room shots,so much to see.! The other pics 6 seconds is Ok too.
I like Ur puppet s too!
SUBSCRIBED… thank you Sue, most interesting. I recently moved into a 1920’s home so this topic was useful as I want to bring my home back to its former glory.
I love this yellow couch under the green curtains. This is the style setee I think they are called and I love and the room it is in Oh My!. My 90 year old friend had a dark green one just like it a velvet or velveteen one I adored it. Because it was for us ladies. I love the colors in the room too not to dark but light and inviting!!
I definitely like the longer looks at the pictures.
A couple of thoughts about possible reasons why the phone was in the entryway 1) it took less wire and drilling through walls to install the phone close to the front door and 2) having a phone was a status symbol. As soon as someone walked in the door it was "LOOK AT ME! WWWEEE have a phone." Just my theory and 2 cents. Lol
Thanks for another amazing, very informative video!
Thanks Sue! Great video and I am liking the six seconds per pic.
Sue, I just discovered your channel, Love It!! I love history, home decorating, design, etc. Keep making these videos.
18:10 Wow, your stove is beautiful! (Of course you know that).😁
Love your stove, I also have a Sears stove a cream and green enamel cast iron 1921 wood/coal combo with 4 gas side burners. Have had it since 1972 but I am falling out of love with it! There have been many gas kitchen stoves in my life, but this stove has kept me warm for most of my life! Looking forward to learning about the gas conversion of your stove!
You are the best…..well the CLL is also!
Much better at 6 seconds
Thank you, Sue! You are amazing!!
Omg when I was a child we lived in my grandfathers house. From the time that I can remember remembering we had the traditional white stove in the house. But out in the garage (which was situated in the alley) was a green stove exactly like ur Ezra 😉. You know my twin brother and I literally tore that stove apart. I don’t know how we managed but we even managed to break the knobs off. The cute little shelf and oven door. You know, someone should have beat our butts black and blue. It really made my day seeing your stove sitting there proudly. I’m glad you found the perfect fit. Thank you for sharing
6 seconds is my vote – more time to look at details and easier to pause, if you want to spend more time looking. Thank you!
Six seconds is wonderful. I had to laugh my house has that exact fixture,l couldn’t f8gure out what kind of shade .Now, l realize no shades it’s just about the bulb.
You rock, Sue. Thanks for all the solid information.
Just finished reading all your lovely comments and replies and have to add 2 more cents… My parents’ first house was custom built in 1952 in San Antonio, TX. Had a telephone alcove specially placed in the exact center of the house. It was about 4 feet from the floor and had a little phone book shelf underneath. When Daddy added on 2 large rooms, he made a curved end open cabinet and the 2nd phone sat there. it was about 2 feet off the floor and I recall our cat would jump up on the shelf and meow at it while it rang. My maternal grandparents lived 30 miles from the nearest small town and finally got a phone in the 1980’s. They had electricity at least by the 1950’s as I recall. The ceiling light was just a bulb, but on the side of the fixture there were one or two electrical plug sockets. Running water came later and was hand carried into the house for baths, which had to be heated on the stove. We pumped it also for cooking, and drinking. The outhouse was like torture for us city kids. In the summer, you opened the door, stood back and waited for a swarm of grasshoppers to fly out first… They literally (physically) had the Sears Roebuck catalog for paper.We called the refrigerator the "Ice Box" or the "Frigidaire", which was the brand name on the front. Do you remember the package stores, convenience stores, corner stores, etc. that sold beer, sodas, ice cream and some dry goods? We called them Ice Houses. I guess they were the places to get ice for our old ice boxes.My family gave my grandparents a tiny black and white tv in the 1980’s. they said they didn’t need it, but once they started watching, they were hooked…Thanks Sue, and everyone else, for such a walk down memory lane!
Like the 6 seconds for limited number of pics. Long line of pics maybe like 4 or 5 seconds if that is an option. Love your videos.
Please keep the pictures up the 6 seconds
Thank you so much for this video ,so informative
Its the current trend now…a new type of cushion whoa.
Those interiors . . . Chef’s kiss
Love the clock. Great idea.
Every room so lovely and cozy! I remember visiting an aunt who kept everything her mother had. Her house was wonderful to be in. As a kid I would love to sit in her living room and read.
I like the 6 second gives me more time to notice the details.
Yes, good job, I liked the 6 seconds to look 👀
Hi Sue! I do believe I’ve found my favorite YouTube channel! You are so interesting to listen to and I love all the information you deliver.
Were you ever a History teacher? If not you’d sure make a great one! With your ability to captivate people’s attention, and keep them entertained at the same time you’ve got great public speaking skills!
Wow!!!!!! Love that stove!!!!! 6 burner!!!! Wow!!! Oh!!!!! I should have waited!!! Kerosene!!!! Wow!!!!1
Definitely longer picture viewing is good. My parents had newer 50s -60s furniture but they had that 1930s Vanity in the 2nd bdrm photo. It was probably my dad’s..he was 17 yrs older than my mother and had been a bachelor awhile.
Edit.. I am remembering the movie "Meet Me in St Louis" .. the family was well off… They had gas lighting? (I think) piped through the walls (scary).. still had an ice box.. but they did have a phone?.. it was a huge deal to get a long distance call.. Maybe it was one of those movie "fibs"??
I prefer the longer 6 seconds as I can take more in from the pictures, thank you Sue.
I just love your videos. You are so knowledgeable about what you do. It is nice to see. ♡
Good morning Sue .
Well Done, Sue! I love your pictures and explanation. Whatever speed you use is okay with me. I love the room pics the most. I have a large collection of old magazines and the ads are my favorite. Thanks for all you put into these. It’s much appreciated. I like that you give time for the photos that have lots going on.
6 seconds is perfect!
I love your stove
Thank you for another wonderful video!
I prefer 6 seconds, or even longer. I will replay this video and pause on each picture. loved the video…
And if you had a servant, it would be more dignified and proper for the servant to receive calls in a neutral area of the house and not always be barging into the family rooms?
I think now days there are homes with a formal living room with no tv but family rooms have the tv if they have both rooms
Hi Sue! Your channel appeared on my screen. You and others here shared a common interest! 🙂 Thank you for posting the photos for 6 seconds to give us time to examine the products. I "pause" the video to gaze at designs, quality of materials, and workmanship — a good time to be alive. I bought a 1930 Tudor but the Great Depression made product distribution difficult. So, I think I’ll focus on the 1920s for product selection and availability. Anyhow, I’m here and glad I found you! 🙂
Hello Sue! I love watching your videos! 6 sec is better. I would love for you to get in touch with me regarding an old lamp I bought at a Restore Thrift Shop. Maybe if you saw a photo of it you could give me some information. It is quite an unusual lamp. I am very excited to get your opinions about how old it is, etc… Thanks again and keep up the great videos!
I remember phone tables. I see them in auctions sometimes still. I may need to find one for my home. Great video!
You have given us such a gift with this series of videos. Thank you so much💕
I decided once to just give up electric lights for a week. I lasted three days and was astonished to see how quickly my view of everything changed. I was dividing my tasks into daylight (needs good light) or could be done in the dark. 🙂 P.S. And I did keep cow hours – lol.
