This photo shows my kitchen looking a tad worse than when I purchased the house in 1978 because I could not wait to start the demo. The sink you see was the extent of the kitchen. There were no cabinets or counters. The yellow wallpaper was intact at closing but it didn't last much longer than a few days. Sadly, it had been freshly hung by the previous owner and I remember her lamenting the fact that she had just gotten her kitchen the way she wanted it and now she was moving.
