Transcript Beautiful and modern as today's "streamlined" car is this Curtis kitchen. Curtis sectional kitchen cabinets are permanent furniture of the highest quality.

Curtis units dre available in various widths (multiples of two and four inches) to fit every practical kitchen need. This broom closet occupies 20" x 243 2" of floor space; still behind its closed door there is 19" x 24" of usable space, 62" high. This is a very popular unit.

Curtis cabinets are factory-made, strong, durable and good- looking. There are units to accommodate range, sink and refrigerator, and still, as illustrated here, each is but a step from the other. Curtis sectional kitchen units have been tested and approved by Good Housekeeping Institute conducted by Good Housekeeping Magazine. Curtis-equipped kitchens are used by many noted home economic authorities in test kitchens of magazines and several advertising agencies.
