This range in white was in a school friend's house. I only saw it once; his mom kept us in the basement, but it was absolutely beautiful the time I saw it when we had refreshments in the kitchen. It's funny that they had all Hotpoint appliances when his father worked for GM out in Doraville. After the Hotpoint washer died, they got a Kenmore and she kept the tape on the opening under the lid switch that said something like Important! Tub will not spin with lid raised. I asked her about why that tape was not removed by the installers because our machine did not have that tape there and she said it needed to be there for safety.  I'll bet she was a character as a wife and mother.

There were 3 nice subdivisions in Chamblee and Doraville that included Hotpoint appliances.  William Talley was the builder for at least 2 of these subdivisions, so I'm guessing he received good pricing from Hotpoint.  There was Sexton Woods and Huntley Hills in Chamblee and Northwoods in Doraville.  All featured nice, but modest, MCM architecture.


Did you live in one of these subdivisions?

Oh Heavens no, Lawrence. We were in the Decatur suburbs and our homes did not have builtins or any builder-furnished appliances until long after the first ones were built in the mid-50s. Most peoples' appliances were what they brought with them or bought new for the home which is probably the story of this family's range, although those three Hotpoint pieces could have been a package purchased through the builder, who knows? We had a neighbor with a nice Philco range and the famous V-handle refrigerator that they bought at Economy Auto in Belvedere Plaza when they moved in.
