Lillian Gilbreth's Kitchen practical 1920s: How it reinvented the modern Kitchen

Lillian Gilbreth's Kitchen practical 1920s: How it reinvented the modern Kitchen | Gatsby | Scoop.it

By Alexandra Lange

"..Lillian Moller Gilbreth, industrial psychologist and engineer, was the mother of 12 children. She and husband and partner Frank B. Gilbreth, inventors of what is known as motion study, pioneered the use of short films to watch how industrial processes and office tasks were done, breaking them down into component parts (which they called “therbligs,” Gilbreth backward) to determine how to make a job faster and less taxing. They tested many of their ideas on their children, establishing “the one best way” to take a bath, training preteens to touch type, and charting age-appropriate chores for each child."

"Even though she did not do it herself, Gilbreth still considered housework unpaid labor, and as such, capable of efficiencies. The worker in the kitchen in the 1920s was often not a servant but the lady of the house, who spent an estimated 50 percent of her day there.....women became the targets of intense marketing campaigns for products large and small. Gilbreth worked for these manufacturers, and thus is complicit in the rise of consumerism for the home, but she never made explicit endorsements."

Macarena Del Pilar Cardenas's curator insight, August 30, 2014 10:39 AM

We recently watched the latest version of this movie, starring Leonardo Di Caprio and Tobey Macguire. I had seen the older version with Robert Redford which I really like, but I have to recognize that this version sticks a lot to the written story and the performances are good and it has a nice photography...the students really liked it...specially the girls....
