I was able to get an element for my stove this morning and it's back in business now. Here's an old photo of my stove from back in the day. This is the earliest photo of the stove I could find, and was taken in May, 1956. That's my Mother holding me at the kitchen table at my Grandmother's house. My Dad bought the stove for my Grandmother, telling her it was time for her to replace her old wood cook-stove. My Grandmother, being one hard to give up what she was comfortable with, had the new electric stove sit on the back porch for about a year until she finally relented to replacing her old stand-by wood cook-stove. I live in the old homeplace now, and the kitchen is just about exactly the same as it was in this old photo. The stove is the same, the water heater is the same, the kitchen table and chairs are the same, even the dishes are the same. The old refrigerator was replaced about 20 or so years ago, but other than that, everything remains as it was.
