Neat stuff. Flickr continues to suck as an interface for this kind of thing though.

Love these. Endearing somehow.

So many remind me of my childhood. I had a perambulator like this one. School books with images that were inviting, picture books, comics when the printing was like this with all the Benday dots, the funny papers.

When I was a little rascal in Jamaica and women wore bathing suits like this, there was a roasted peanut man who came by the house with a small cart, a simpler version of this one and one could buy them in a cone of newspaper for thruppance, those wonderful old 12-sided coins.

Thanks for the nostalgia wander.

Adding something completely unrelated but charming. Baby and dog.

I was thinking of the recent tabloid reports of an American girl missing in the Himalayas where we were raised

It's the backstory and plot setup in one line of dialogue. Genius.

Can't decide if that's Darth Vader's TIE fighter, or ASCII porn.
