Thank you, Barb, for sending us this photo of kitchen cabinets in Chicago, Illinois.  They reminded Barb of the John F. Long cabinets seen in Phoenix.

Thank you, Jillian, for sending us this photo of a Rialto, California kitchen.  The original cabinets (circa 1940s?) have been painted over multiple times.

    Those cheap cabinets in the last 2 photos are very common here, in the Philly area. People actually put them in, new, when renovating their kitchens! Imagine going to all of that trouble and expense to re-do a kitchen from top to bottom, then installing those cheesy cabinets. Eleven years ago, they had them in my first apartment.
    We were the first tenants to use them, and the shelves had major sagging within 2 months–and we were careful with them. The only good thing I can say about them: the fronts are so easy to wipe clean each day!

    I meant the top cabinets, with the off-white fronts. I didn’t see the bottom ones until now! Sorry!

    Yeah, you can never figure out which side those cabinets open from. It’s like an intelligence test.
