I Miss the Old Days

Vintage photos from the Coney Island of yesteryear

When it said "yesteryear" I was afraid it was going to be one of those "elderly" things where people are younger than me and are described that way. But this was really "yesteryear" indeed, for the most part.

The last photo, from 1962, confirms that my memory is not faulty after all: the beach was at least twice as wide then as it is today! When you'd walk from your blanket to the water over the hot sand (trying to step on as many other blankets as possible) and back again, it seemed to take forever.

*sigh*

I miss the old days.
