Living in the past? This woman is–1938, to be exact
Just when you thought a claw-foot tub was the epitome of living in the past….
A historical consultant in Amsterdam is living in the past. To be more precise, she’s chosen to live like it’s 1938. Her apartment (except for the computer and the refrigerator) is entirely outfitted as if it’s 1938. She doesn’t have a television, she vacuums with a 1920s machine and she washes her clothes by hand.
She’s profiled here on Yahoo! Homes, where you can check out a slide show of her apartment.
What do you think about living in the past? If you could surround yourself with the trappings of an earlier decade, what would it be? What modern conveniences could you not live without?
