Faster than a speeding train

The human brain is such a fascinating thing.  I look at this photograph and have such a sense of nostalgia.  Distant memories try to come to the surface and I can’t resist the smile that crosses my face.  The odd thing is there is no way that this should trigger any memory.  It would be another 20 years before I entered the world at the time it was taken.  It shows how powerful and how present images from the fifties are in American culture.

I may not have lived it first hand, but is definitely a part of me.
