Object 4 [of 66] – Garland Commercial Range
The Childs bought this used, six-burner restaurant stove for $429 in Washington, D.C., in 1956. They shipped this Garland commercial gas range to their Cambridge home in 1961, where it remained until late 2001, near the main doorway to the kitchen. Ever enthusiastic about her "big Garland," Julia cooked meals and tested recipes on it for over forty years.
