Behind The High Wall(1956) [CRACKED]
I also got stuck on the height thing. I can just barely reach the bottom shelf of the cabinet above the fridge in our house, and I'm 5'6" so above average height for women! Having refrigerated stuff up that high would be grossly inconvenient to my mind. I'd be happier with all cabinets being lower - I'm the one who does all of the cooking anyway! Also, for food storage in general, we have a pantry and so do most people as far as I know, the very top shelves are always for storage of rarely-needed things. The actual food is actually *at* my eye level.
Behind the High Wall(1956)
I think it looks kind of neat! The woman is sitting down, which gives the impression it is mounted higher than it actually is. I am a teeny-tiny apartment dweller and I like the idea of getting the extra counter space. I can see so many reasons why it might be a bad idea, though.
I would generally prefer, I think, not to be lifting heavy things down from above head height. Indeed, I keep my heavy pans in a floor level cupboard and only light-weight or rarely-used things in the high up cupboards in our kitchen.
My grandparents' house in Albuquerque still has a fridge like this. They have had it repaired a few times and painted it white (it used to be teal, like the one in the ad) but it still works. I always liked it because it doesn't take up the visual space of a monolithic fridge. As far as losing food in it goes, even though the top shelves are somewhat high, the cabinets are not as deep as a standard fridge, so in my experience, the items are more visible.
you personalize your home for comfort, cabinets too high have them lower if you are short. I personally think this is pure genius. Why let this go to the wayside? just update it with the technology of today. Nobody said you have to install cabinets or something like this to the top of the ceiling. Even Julia Child had her home cabinets raised to comfort her 6'3'' height. I like this refrigerator cabinet-style idea because some houses just don't have floor space. I have lived in several homes and not one had a pantry. But a pantry has nothing to do where a refrigerator goes.
we had one from our 1966 house that was in place from the sale of the house, within a few months the compressor died having no choice to service/replace because the kitchen design was built around it. GE said this was a design flaw having the motor up high where it stay warm or hot constantly running in a climate or house that did not have central air. It worked til the mid/late 90s. RIP

We loved it, so cool the funky 50/60 colors pink inside and lemon yellow exterior, visitors or guest would always say (wheres your fridge once they where in the kitchen),
That reminds me of the story of a village in the mountains, with a twisty road running through it. At one corner there was a very steep cliff. There were a lot of nasty accidents there. So, they built a high wall. A visitor who saw the wall being built was very relieved. It seemed very good precaution. But when he came back eight years later, the wall had been allowed to crumble, and had practically disappeared. So he asked a villager: "What has happened?" The villager said: "Weel, nothing has happened. There were no accidents, so we thought the wall was unnecessary."
The votive objects including the basin were dedicated in the temple either to express thanksgiving or in support of some prayer. The donor of the basin, Amenemhet, was not a man of high social standing. The object he dedicated is precious, however. It certainly represented a valuable piece of the equipment of the sanctuary. We may well assume that the basin once stood near the place where it was found, at the right of the entrance between the northeast pillar and the door. The door opening inside to the left, the libation basin was passed by anyone who entered the sanctuary. We do not know whether it contained water to be taken out for libation or whether it was a receptacle into which the visitor would pour water. The figure of Amenemhet rising behind the basin would have made him a participant in accepting the libation destined for the god if the water was poured into the basin. T hen the hole in the bottom of the basin was probably genuine and would indicate that it stood either on unpaved soil or upon some drainage contraption. Otherwise, if the basin offered water to the visitor for him to use for the benefit of the god, the figure would indicate that Amenemhet wished to be a servant of the god and his temple in eternity. In this case, the hole in the basin would have been made later for some purpose unknown.
Detailed work in significant sites takes first place in our plans, however. The last season has proved once more that the soil of Memphis hides treasures unknown, sometimes in unexpected spots. Among the objects found during this season, one group should be briefly discussed here, the reliefs from Ramessid tombs, especially that of Iyry (see Frontispiece and Figs. 8, 9, 10). That these reliefs of Iyry and some of the others appear to be unique in one way or another shows how extremely poor is our knowledge of Memphite tombs from the period of the Empire (about 1550 to 1080 B.C.) and later. This is in contrast to the numerous tombs both of the Old Kingdom of the third millenium B.C. in the Memphite area, and of the Empire in the southern capital of Thebes. Virtually, we possess only scattered reliefs from Memphite Empire tombs. Several of them were reused by Coptic monks in the monastery of Jeremy and came into the Cairo Museum as the result of an excavation. Others were sold to European museums by treasure hunters about 125 years ago. No complete tomb to speak of is preserved. We do not even know where the various tombs were situated, whether in the desert around the pyramids or in the cultivated land, in Memphis itself. A small group of these reliefs originated from tombs whose owners were high priests of Memphis between 1350 and 1250 B.C. They were found about 1894 in the area of Mit Rahineh, one of them reused in a village building as far away as Giza, about twelve miles to the north. Subsequently, they were sold to the museums of Berlin and Copenhagen. One of them, representing the funeral cortege of a high priest, is rightly counted among the finest Egyptian reliefs, and the others, too, are of a very good quality. It is this group of reliefs of which those of Iyry are most reminiscent as Iyry was a high priest of Memphis around, or soon after, 1250 B.C., and the relief of the couple is of an outstanding quality. Seeing the circumstances of their discovery we may conclude perhaps that his tomb was not too far from our site and that the other tombs of high priests were situated in the same cemetery. We do not know whether anything of such an Empire cemetery has been preserved, and anyway there would be no use in seeking for it at random. However, it seems to be useful to take this possibility into consideration when we think of the topography of Memphis. I should like to express the fervent desire that, some day, this cemetery, if it exists, will not be found accidentally, because this means destruction. By whom it is found is unimportant but it should be found during some systematic research.
From the middle of the foreground, the enclosure wall of the Ramses temple, about 4 meters wide, runs eastward to the corner of the pylon. It may be followed, in the picture, through the areas A, D West, and D East, with its northern face removed in the middle area for detailed research. The three areas are separated from each other by partitions of earth which were spared during the excavation in order to provide us with cross sections. At the northeast corner of the excavated area, the northern tower of the pylon is visible (see Fig. 2). The middle area, D West, is represented in Fig. 4. The area A, in the foreground, shows a circular hole in the enclosure wall, which we made for the examination of the depth of the construction. In the foreground to the left, the masonry of the sanctuary is seen. The two large rectangular holes filled with ground water, between sanctuary and enclosure wall, are the tombs W and Y which were covered with sculptured stones taken from an earlier cemetery. The high acacia trees in the background represent the site of the sheltered colossus of Ramses II, which will become the center of a small museum replacing the shelter. Unfortunately, the high eucalyptus which had joined this group of trees for fifty years had to be removed for the benefit of the new building.
The limestone lintel, 39 cm. high and 47 cm. thick with sloping back was taken from the tomb of Iyry as were the relief slab and the doorpost, Figs. 8 and 10. It consisted of two horizontal blocks. When they were removed from their original position, they were shortened to lengths of about 164 and 146 cms. They broke after they served as roof slabs of tomb W. The lintel appears to have been designed for a double door. It is crowned all the way through by a cavetto cornice rising upon a thin torus moulding. The plaque-like table scene in the center of the lower section separates the two sub-lintels, each consisting of a horizontal line of inscription and a thick torus moulding beneath. However, the lintel most probably headed a diptychon and not actual doors.
