Rancho Los Alamitos Restoration of the Kitchen Areas and the Cook’s Bedroom - Pamela Young Lee
Curator Pam Lee guided detailed historical examination before returning the kitchen and cook’s bedroom to their conditions in the late 1920s and 30s. Through a combination of repair, replication and relocation of accoutrements from the Rancho collection, she has provided a delightful glimpse into the orderly activities of the “behind-the- scenes” help as well as their employers.
