Archive Treasures: Cooking Up A Storm

A Handmaid Diamond Jubilee

Perhaps, unless one is upgrading or repairing a kitchen, your photo albums don’t have kitchen photos in them. It’s more likely someone was capturing who was in the kitchen, rather than the room itself. We’ve taken a few over the years and find ourselves amazed at two extremes: how much can be done by one Handmaid in one kitchen, and how many Handmaids can simultaneously work in the kitchen without collisions. (There have been collisions, but generally mild and polite.) Cooking is one feat. Clean up is quite another.
