I looked and the first practical through the wall/window mount air conditioning unit was invented by engineers at Chrysler Motors and offered for sale starting in 1935.

Looks like it could be! I can imagine the 50's housewife on that front porch with a child already.

The microwave was invented in the 40's also. It was as big as a refrigerator and was called a "Radar Range" :)

It feels like 1964 to me.
Roof needs repair, siding could use fresh paint, but it looks like the car just got a wax job. :D

i had to look up the history of air conditioning to see when window units became common.   The 50's appear to have been a peak time for them.   If you ever find a scene like this and there is a TV antenna on the roof, you may be in the Twilight Zone.
