Posts Tagged ‘1940s’

.. we were on a mission to find some hot chocolate, and stumbled upon the Ritz Crystal Room at Remember When Antiques. The kids were just happy to peel off snow suits and settle in to a hot cup of cho – but the adults enjoyed checking out all the clothes and items from the 40s and 50s. It looked like an old theater house to me… and there were still a lot of holiday decorations abound; like sugar plums from the 40s that I seem to remember seeing at my grandmother’s house way back when.
How do they keep the dust away from these little tchotchkes? I do love the dresses…

Every year we like to find the MTA’s vintage trains riding the tracks with all the others. They pull the cars (from the 1930s and 1940s) out of this museum that we visited this past summer, and take them for a spin on the tracks every Sunday in December. When we are really lucky, we find a pack of people who show up dressed up in clothing from the same era. All aboard!
