What old folks have probably forgotten, and young kids never knew about.

Click on a State, and then the city or the county.  I found things I had forgotton, or never knew about. Kids now your parents or grandparents, or great grandparents or the old geezer next door can talk about things in the past, of olden times, of their youth, of the good ol' days.

Jim:  Thanks for the link.  I looked up Topeka, Kansas and it was interesting to see how things have changed and how some things have remained the same.

Jim, thanks for sharing this, my husband and I got a kick out of looking at some of these things! However, most of the things we looked at still look the same (just a little, uh, seasoned now), but it was fun to see them back then with the old cars (or buggies!)

 Sorry for bring this post back from the dead a month later....just catching up on a lot of these. I just wanted to say thanks for posting this. I seem some old photos that I think my dad would like of the railroad he use to work for and I also seen old pictures of Barstow, Ca where I use to live. Too cool! It does bring back memories :)
