A country auction - How much am I bid for this Kewpie doll? Everyone had a hat advertising their tractor or brand of corn. The auction was out in the countryside of Illinois. The few not bidding sat on chairs and didn't much talk to one another.
In the mid-1970s I lived on Elaine Place in the Newtown area of Chicago. Every building was empty except for mine and another. A builder had purchased all the buildings on the block and began to renovate all of them at the same time. He ran out of money and the buildings remained vacant. Rarely did anyone ever venture onto our block. These kids appeared out of nowhere one day and were having the time of their lives parading up the sidewalk. They never returned.
The sign reads "431 Miles to Bergenfield, NJ". It was located along a coast road in Maine.
