The only brand of linoleum that is in commerce in the US is Marmoleum.
Cork is a really long-lasting flooring, and easy on the joints (knees and stuff). They make cork-veneer prefinished clik-lock types, but you can till get glue-down cork tiles that get site-finished, and can be refinished when needed. It's also a renewable resource.
I would look into Marmlouem, much better than linoleum and it's made of natural material and lasts a lifetime. You see it in schools and commercial buildings mostly. This stuff is amazing and comes in tons of colors and design.
I leaning towards a 12' sheet vinyl from Mannington that has no lines (to make small kitchen appear larger) and a mild pattern (nothing too bold) for easy maintenance (no seams, damp mop clean). You mentioned a 40s bungalow, so this might be an option for you. Area rugs were in style with that era, defining the space. I'll be doing a bold color in the dining area of my kitchen, but warm tones for that era feel. Good luck!
