Bread boxes...what happened to them?


When I was a kid (late 50s early 60s) everyone had a bread box on the kitchen counter. I can still picture my grandmother's that was always full of fresh baked bread and other baked goodies. Now the only time you even hear of them is in the question "Is it bigger then a bread box?" when there is a guessing game a foot.
So is there a practical reason for the mass exodus of the people away from this simple box that kept your baked goods handy? Or just slowly forgotten by us baby boomers?
