Long Ago

The tour guide stops and sighs, “this is one of my favorite exhibits in the entire museum.

You’ll notice there’s an actual outside beyond that window. It’s not just a picture, this little girl’s bedroom overlooked Broadway and Sixty-Sixth street. If you listen carefully there is a soundtrack playing of long ago New York City. Do you hear the traffic and the sirens? My favorite part is coming up. There it is! A horn honk… and a crash… then two men arguing. That is an actual recording of a minor auto accident.

Oh, what a world to have lived in.

The toys and furniture are all made out of natural elements like wood and actual cotton and wool.”

“Was this child rich?” a little girl with purple hair interrupts.

“Not even.” In early 21st century all of these things could be made by hand, or even store bought. No 3D printing was even needed.”
