After Sidney Corbett was confined to a wheelchair, the Corbetts began writing a series of articles for the Detroit Sunday News, showing that life in a wheelchair could be lived to the fullest and be lots of fun. Lucy Corbett included chatty conversational recipes that she developed in her kitchen with THREE stoves. Long Windows came from those columns.
