More Treasures From Another (Even Older) Time
Folded up behind the passes was a train schedule. I thought the ads were more interesting than the schedule on the other side, so that's what I scanned.
This schedule was good for January 1944, for New York to Mt. Kisco, Bedford Hills and Katonah.
It's nice that you can still get a room and a bath for $2.50. (What... No HBO?)
The "New York's Suburbs" ad reminds me of Back to the Future for some reason.
Interesting that only one ad even mentions telephone numbers.
Yes, this was a very long time ago. Another world, really. My grandfather was born in 1896. He was 47 when my mother was born - which incidentally is the age that I am now.
