Today’s Top 5

The price of a sweet

$1.00 in 1928 had the same buying power as $14.25 in 2018. So the 10 cent 1928 Oh Henry candy bar would cost $1.42 today. That was fairly expensive 90 years ago.

Chimneys

Those chimneys have so many damaged and missing bricks that one wonders what held them up. Even so, the current remodel has managed to remove every iota of charm, attractiveness and historical appearance from this building.

Expensive Candy?

The candy seems expensive for the time. I remember buying candy bars for 10 cents in the 1970's.

Now with a new lease on life

The New Ride

... is pulling the local girls as expected but the brakes are not as good as he had hoped. A shoe change may be needed.

Soap box derby plans?

I can't imagine a single person of a certain age who will not immediately think of the Little Rascals' "Our Gang" comedies.
