Sometimes I Miss the Old Days

February 16th, 2010 Posted in Uncategorized

While I was going through my boxes and boxes of stuff I came across some photographs from the NYPD’s photographic unit. Most were of crime scenes and pictures of people I was writing about, but I also got a copy of this one. I guess it must have been the scene of a crime, but I asked for it because it made me feel nostalgic. I mean, look at it. It’s classic in every last detail. The phone booths in the back!!

    The Smithsonian needs to set this up right next to Julia Child’s kitchen…

    I miss those days too. I miss the old Woolworth’s. Whenever I can, I try to dine in old timey diners. These places tend to not only have a warm atmosphere, they are family owned and friendly as all get out. (Hugs)Indigo

    This photo inspired me to dig out an old b&w picture of my grandparent’s 1940s city cafe. It was in the town where I live now, but long ago — the menu reads ten cents for hamburgers. My grandmother was a fabulous cook (unlike myself!) and always said she had a ‘secret recipe’ for the burgers — crowds would appear every day at lunch. I am planning to scan/post the cafe picture at my blog soon.

    Nostalgia can be truly interesting/inspiring.
