Gone at the days of wearing aprons to protect clothing from spills and splatters in the kitchen!
Until the 1930s it was not uncommon for women and older girls to wear aprons outside the home. Some even wore dressy aprons to church!
Today this particular item, once considered essential in the kitchen, is seldom seen.
The following 11 aprons date from the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s. The collection is owned by Juanita McEntyre.
CARLTON AND HENRIETTA McDANIEL'S
COLLECTION OF ITEMS
FROM KITCHENS OF THE PAST
Kitchens of the past have had some interesting tools, appliances, and gadgets. This McDaniel collection includes many items that were once found in almost all Murray County kitchens, for example, churns, tea kettles, iron skillets, metal frying pans, dishpans, etc. Here you'll also find a few things that were not commonly found in Murray kitchens, such as coffee grinders, bacon presses, electric egg cookers, waffle irons, and sausage stuffers.
For those seriously interested in details, the markings (for each item that had any) are also given. There's a couple of items in this collection that remain unidentified; if you know what they are, please tell us so we can post the information!
This collection is privately owned and not available for public viewing or examination.
However, it is being shared through this computer-based museum enabling visitors to see each item, probably in closer detail than would be possible in a traditional museum. Enjoy!
