Windows Of The Past

We came upon these wonderful windows a few days ago. They were in an old Esso building. Remember that Exxon used to be Esso? These were windows of memory of the far away past and more recent past. I DO remember the leg lamps and the hula hoops, what do you remember?

I remember the leg lamp from the movie A Christmas story. Of course I had a few hula hoops back in the day too

I love those old signs, etc.. I could never forget that leg lamp since I watch A Christmas Story every Christmas season.

Happy New Year!

Best,

What a lovely display. I didn't know about Exxon being Esso before. I do remember hula hoop! But I didn't play like the girl in display :-) Quite acrobatic!
