Kellogg's Modern Home Kit, 1947




A fantastic piece of Americana: paper cut-outs of actual homes that could be built from a kit. A reminder of the housing shortage in the years immediately following the end of World War II, and the pent-up consumer demand for a new life in the suburbs. From the collection of Jean Mallett.

  1. Oh, I love those. Of course it would take all the restraint I have not to cut them up and assemble them.

  2. I'm with Christine. I want to cut this up and assemble it. A whole Kellogg's village!
