It's pretty bad when you don't remember whether you've posted about something, especially something that's kinda neat to remember:
If you don't know, the tall door there, with hinges at the bottom? It pulled out from the top, was lined with galvanized metal, and held a 50 pound sack of flour. Of course bread was made at home at least once a week, so a good supply was necessary.
In 1959, when the house in Sauk Rapids was built, Mom made sure she had a flour drawer (cupboards next to the fridge) nicely lined with white enameled metal. It didn't hold as much, but the supply was better by then.
Funny, I think what fascinates me about the picture is my little-girl view of those cupboards--I wasn't much taller than the flour bin when I realized what it was for. To see what was in there, I remember holding the handle edge and stretching my neck to see inside. ☺
