It's Monday, so Google must have rolled out another new feature to waste our day. Now that I have made my email look prettier I can move on to their new picture gallery of thousands of shots from Life Magazine. One amazing set found by Laure at Dwell is a 1943 series of a kitchen-of-tomorrow exhibit taken by Time/Life's Nina Leen.

It has built in waffle irons and toasters, a kitchen sink operated by foot pedals decent storage for root vegetables and a great glass display of canned goods from the gardens, this is truly a kitchen of tomorrow today. other Kitchens of the Future in TreeHugger:
