If you could still get one of those houses for $16,990, I'd say the cost of adding A/C wouldn't be a dealbreaker.

Wonder what those neighborhoods look like today?

Exactly John

A mortgage was 10 or 15 years then as well. Today most will never be free and clear before death.
My career hero and mentor Mr. Lee Iaccoca said it in his book "Talking Straight".
We'll be leaving the kids the mortgage, not the deeds it said.
I modeled my own management skills by his read. He said the lines keep the money moving, and the money keeps the lines moving. He was not anti-labor.
So I figured so long as I made money for the company, I'd have a job until retirement.
Ha! If corporations are people too, they have a strange way of showing it. I had maybe two low inventory counts for my dept. in 20 years, and always got it back up the next term.
With all the guff today about trade wars and tariff's, if somebody was concerned about our manufacturing base being outsourced, where was he when Reagan, etc. was busting organized labor? They allowed us into Mexico, and China. So now a union has little bargaining power. Bring back the plants, and the unions will get strong again. The companies don't want that. Soon, there'll be no place to work workers were told, so they gave concessions. Even when a company was still very profitable. They ended up on the street anyhow after a while. In China, and Soviet union, they only had the right to remain poor, not to mention starving. No work incentives, no productivity. Mexico treats workers poorly, and we were trading with a red communist nation which killed baby girls to control population. Now they want more babies born here, but will cry when more are on welfare too. It's a dead horse now. You can't tariff anything when you have no factories left for capacity to make anything.
It's a different world. How many young people even want a factory job? Nill. They all want to be gaming developers, web designers, cannabis growers, and dope dealers. Not my problem now. Our kids got educations. I'll be dead before much changes in 20 to 30 years.

If the Tank is in the wall, and the "Hopper" is hooked up to the wall, How do you service the Float Valve and all that Nonsense ???

Sounds Like a Dream come True.

However, a truly nice design just to vacuum around the Loo. ( Personally, I never found it inconvenient to vac around a W.C.. )

The tank is serviced through a removable panel. What I can't get over is the carpet under the bowl. Talk about a maintenance nightmare.

Notice the toilet paper that matches the “desert turquoise,” er, “closet.”

We have so much choice in consumer goods today, but you can get toilet paper in any color you want as long as it’s white.

Hanging toilets are the standard here, new houses are all built with them and people renovating their house put one in often too. Ofcourse no carpet here, but tiles. Cleaning is a breeze!

Like the ad for Cold Power. She could only get cold water into her washer. Guess she never thought that both hoses were not connected and that the one connected was for the cold water and was put on reversed for the valves.

I remember colored toilet paper very well, hell I remember when it had printed designs on it and some came with a fragrance. Most paper napkins and towels back then also came in colors and prints. You rarely see those now.

Me too Louis.  My grandmother used Soft & Pretty while my mother bought Charmin in green or blue and a neighbor bought pink.

The Kohler toilet I bought for my basement hangs from the wall. It required a water closet carrier (aka "chair carrier") that is bolted to the floor at the bottom of the inner wall - that part actually cost more than the bowl! It will support even a very heavy person. The toilet has a Sloan flush valve, which required a 1" water line to be connected. Mopping under the commode is much nicer than having to reach around to clean behind it.

As for colored toilet paper, I think I remember it being discontinued because it was causing irritation to certain "parts" on women.

Carpet in a bathroom is nasty! Only suitable for a "dude free" home.

In my basement I'm on my third and final wall hung toilet.  When we had the sewers put in years ago we had a 3" line come in at floor level to accommodate the wall hung toilet and the various sinks and laundry equipment.  The first had a tank and after about a decade it failed, cracking along at the mount points, replaced that with a similar unit, again it failed.

 

After that I get fed up.  Bought a commercial low flow unit and put in a Sloan flush valve.  This will never fail as it is properly designed and built.  Luckily all three matched up to the in wall carrier framed into 2x6 studs, no floor connection needed.  Plus with the Sloan valve's pressure this thing has never backed up or gotten plugged.  Kind of wish all my toilets had Sloan valves...
