Our 1950s house came with an instruction manual.

Our house came with an instruction manual that I recently found tucked behind some insulation in the garage. We live in a planned community built in San Francisco in the mid 1950s. This particular house was built in 1956 by Sunstream Homes, so the manual is over 52 years old.

The house also still has the original electric stove, but that’s another story.

What an awesome read, check out the fullsize version.
