^Wish I had a time machine to go back to that very spot just for a day-- the inconveniences and backwards social attitudes would drive me too crazy to spend any more than 1 day's time there, though.

Virtual reality is going to allow us to do this.

If so, it will be some idealized and incomplete version.  They will probably leave out the smell, for example.

We could always add Scratch-n-Sniff History. :P Too bad folks under 40 probably don't remember scratch-n-sniff stickers. Or, worse, Larry Flynt's scratch-n-sniff Hustler centerfold.

It never ceases to amaze me how people got dressed up for the privilege of partaking in activities we now take for granted, like going to a ball game or driving in a car...... or voting

People were simply better dressed 50-100 years ago.

Clothing was more expensive back then too.   I don't think people had a lot of clothes.   They wouldn't have casual wear that we have now.

^^^ Yep. Back then, a man would have a couple of suits (black, gray and/ or blue) and tweed suit for the winter. Throw in a handful of white shirts and collars, a couple of pairs of shoes, winter and summer hats and an overcoat and that was about it. Needless to say, the quality of materials and workmanship was, on average, way ahead of anything available in the mass market today.

I'm guessing that's before Walker and Weeks remodeled the space.
