I only getting one in the U. S. Marines and ours had an indent in the tag that was to be used to ID dead Marines. You would place the dog tags in the person’s mouth and slam the jaw shut so that body people could ID the poor dead person if no one was around.
Not really nostalgia but why not use it.

This index covers almost all of my nostalgic memories. It will cover New York City and Yorkville Pictures, Hollywood and Famous People, and everything else Nostalgic. This Master Index will have all the posts that I have made over the past year or so. Hopefully. I pinned most of them to my Nostalgia category on Pinterest. Enjoy.
A Nostalgic Moment – Central Park – March 29, 2016
Today’s Nostalgic Moment is a look back, now and then, at Central Park. Most have a favorite spot in Central Park but most of the pictures deal with the Promenade by Row A Boat Lake where you rented boats on a warm afternoon. As little kids from Yorkville, we used to go fishing for sun fish in Row A Boat Lake. Enjoy some Nostalgic Moments of Central Park, Now and Then.
I seem to recall the horse trails that were in the same vicinity as the reservoir.

That’s another Nostalgic Moment of Central Park….Now and Then.
This nostalgic look back is in Yorkville, a Community on the east Side of Manhattan. A few items did not show any pictures in my search but I did find a picture of the era for you to see.

The old Fink’s Commercial Bakery was on 76th or 77th Street, east of York Avenue. This was as close as possible to return to those special moments when you stopped by to pick up a loaf of rye bread to bring home for your mother. Oh yeah! I would stop by the candy store on the same block to buy a cold Pepsi Cola to drink on the way home while you were chewing a piece of rye bread.
Some of the restaurants on 86th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues. If you couldn’t find a place to eat on 86th Street, you really had a problem.
Belvedere Castle in Central Park. How many times did you take a walk to Central park and found yourself running all over this castle

Here is a front view of the old style milk truck that were a frequent visitors to those houses in Yorkville when milk was delivered. I remember on those winter mornings when the weather was pretty cold and you could see the milk bottles with their cardboard caps pop in the cold weather and the cream ooze out the top of the bottle.
