Ever since three nine- and ten-year-old chums and I (unbeknown to our parents, of course) ventured to walk the four or five miles through terra-incognita streets to Boston‘s Museum of Fine Arts, guided only by a Gulf Oil Co. street map, I was smitten by the antiquities, travel and collectibles “bug,” seeking the unusual.

I don’t know about all of you, but I can honestly wonder what my Aunt and Uncle watched on TV back in the 1940’s.

Brings back memories.
