We have a set of those Regal stainless steel mixing bowls that my late mother-in-law received from saving Raleigh cigarette coupons.  They are so handy to have, and still look great all these years later.

American Standard had one on the market around the mid 60s

It was a low profile unit. I remember it as my Mom was updating our bathroom and it was a condender until my Dad saw the price.

Looked like this one

I still have my Mom's stove-top Pyrex percolator.  I even have the original box in which it came.  I guess it's probably fifty years old by now.

How do you hang pictures in a concrete house lol. It looks like a gym

Post# 1025644 , Reply# 73   2/25/2019 at 21:40 by CircleW (NE Cincinnati OH area)        
Hanging pictures

The best way to do so would be to install a picture rail with screws into anchors. This would give flexibility to hang them in the location desired. Otherwise, an anchor and screw, or a masonry nail, at each location could be used.

We had several pictures and other items hung on our basement walls with nails.

If I were building a concrete house, I would probably mount steel hat channel, and install drywall for better finished look.

Concrete home. The interior looks like an unfinished basement. Just awful. You'd think they could have applied a skim coat on to give the walls a smooth finish.

There was a housing development here that was built with concrete block on slab, cheap homes with electric heat, no gas to the neighborhood.  Those who lived there joked that if you didn't freeze to death, the electric bill would kill you.
