Flooring

That linoleum bears a strong resemblance to the kitchen flooring of my youth. It looked like an explosion in a paint factory. As a young adult, I gave it the moniker 'Brain Damage'.

[It also looks like our kitchen floor, which was already in place when I was old enough to start noticing things in the mid-50s.]

Oooh, that smell!

I can smell that trailer right now. The wood, canvas, varnish, rubber, books, and fabric. No plastics or synthetics. That's the smell of my early childhood.
