The house we live in is quite original. It comes with unrenovated bathroom, kitchen and laundry. Built in the 1930's. I wonder that the lady of the house didn't see an advertisment for one of these, sometime in the fifties.
The advertisement goes on to say, " A quick wipe around the gleaming surface of a stainless steel tub and you can see it's clean. How different from rough, worn, porous tubs!" Indeed. I can see the appeal. Yes, I can. Why would anyone want to have one of these? They need to be scrubbed out with bleach, regularly. Or they look like this.
The advertisement also talks about swishing your nylons around in your smooth Malleys tub. Nothing gets swished in this tub. Shudder. Next time, something pretty.
