    Default Need help identifying old kitchen flooring

    Hello,

    I am trying to identify flooring in the kitchen of a building built in 1949. I do not think the flooring is original, but I want to determine if it is historic. I am attaching a photo and hope that if anyone is an historic pattern expert on vinyl or linoleum flooring, they may be able to help me!

    Thanks,

    Grace

    It's vinyl flooring from a period when shag rugs, olive green, and burnt orange was the style. It didn't last very long because it was so hideous.

    Did you have one of those cute little shag rakes? And let us no forget the ever popular Harvest **** appliances.
