Brigham Young had some very creative ideas about how to live. He thought the pioneers could cook and eat together. He suggested that five hundred people might eat in a hall with a kitchen at one end. “[If there is] a person at the further end of the table . . . he should telegraph that he wanted a warm beef steak; and this is conveyed to him by a little railway, perhaps under the table . . . And when they have all eaten, the dishes are piled together, slipped under the table, and run back to the ones who wash them.” Would kids have a hay-day with this one. I would love watching this under-the-table railway myself.
