I QUITE LOVE THIS SNAPSHOT: IT CAPTURES MANY INTERESTING THINGS.

THE I.C. TRAIN IN MOTION ON EXCHANGE AVE.

THE KIND OF SIMPLE NEIGHBORHOOD SOFTBALL GAME – ALMOST NO EQUIPMENT AND NOT ENOUGH PLAYERS – WHICH REMAINED POPULAR IN MY DAY, THIS PICTURE BEING ABOUT A DECADE EARLIER.

AND THERE’S THE INTERESTING FACT THAT THE GIRLS SOMETIMES PLAYED SOFTBALL ALONG WITH THE BOYS.
