1967 Fireplace Styles


I picked up a Sunset book from 1967 this week entitled "How to Plan and Build Your Fireplace". Fireplaces and mantels have changed over the years!

I had one of these free standing fireplaces in the basement of my first house.  I think it was orange.

    I'd love to see inside that book @ And thank you so much. Our grandson is feeling much better this morning. Barely sniffling and so far I've not heard him cough. Oh by the way I found Bewitched on You Tube. I'm loving it. I just watched one from when I was eight years old. Too funny.
