JOHN AND BILL CHUCKMAN - IN AUNT WILMA'S SMALL, ELEGANT PHILLIPS AVE APARTMENT THE DOORS BEHIND ARE THE HID-A-BED - A CHUCKMAN FAMILY PHOTO

THE DOOR BEHIND THE CHAIR IS ONE OF A PAIR CONTAINING THE ‘MURPHY BED.’

THOSE WERE WONDERFUL CONTRAPTIONS – WE HAD GREAT FUN WHEN WERE YOUNGER SITTING ON THE FOLDING HEADBOARD AND MAKING THE BED FOLD US UP IN THE CLOSET OR LEANING AGAINST THE UPRIGHT BED TO SEND IT CRASHING TO THE FLOOR WITH US ON IT. MAYBE IT WAS THAT KIND OF THING THAT MADE MY POOR MOM HAVE TO FIND NEW APARTMENTS SO OFTEN? 

I GUESS THEY’VE MADE SOMETHING OF A COMEBACK IN SMALL DOWNTOWN CONDOS, BUT THEY ARE NOT BUILT-IN AND AS STURDY AS THESE WERE.
