From grocery stores to supermarkets to mini-marts, playsets from the 1940s through the '90s. The scene on the far right is from Barbie playsets. It's amazing what you can do with a little paint and some imagination (maybe Mr. Neuman wouldn't agree).
Three of the beautiful cardboard punchout playsets produced during the early 1950s by E.Joseph Cossman & Company of California. If anyone knows more about the playsets this company produced, please let me know. I'd love to find more of them.
Some favorite Mad magazines from my collection, including the very 1st issue of the French version of Mad (upper left hand corner) from the Fall of 1965.
Vintage Airliner timetables and tickets from the 1950s.

I have a very small collection of autographs and this is my most prized possession. Yes, that's really Groucho's signature. Probably signed very late in his life, judging by the handwriting.
One of my favorite childhood toys, the Remco Movieland Drive-in Theatre.
A colorful cardboard cut-out city.
