The rise of the kitchen tyrant; - and how she may fall

The rise of the kitchen tyrant; - and how she may fall. Illustration shows the evolution of the domestic servant from country housewife to an employed domestic through seven scenes beginning with the barefooted housewife receiving the summons to the land of the free where in scene two she is greeted by relatives who presumably coach her in the fine art of choosing her employers, which she does in scene three with haughty discrimination. In scenes four and five she fills her leisure time with social activities, such as attending church and enjoying social gatherings at home. The central figure, scene six, shows her as an oversized and defiant Kitchen Tyrant with four well-dressed women, on their knees, pleading with her. The final scene shows her downfall, a ready and delightful solution of the whole problem; - one that we are all coming to. It shows a tall skyscraper, Family Apartment House offering more comforts than at home - no more wrangling with servants - meals, laundry work, valets, chambermaids, and all domestic service provided by the management. In the background is a row of low, brownstone-like walk-ups, this row of dwellings to let cheap. No reasonable offer refused.. Date 1901 March 6.
