Mystery solved!

Post by Flyvapnet on Fri Sep 25, 2009 2:07 pm

Yay! Thanks a million for posting that link, Karoline! I'm thrilled, in both literary and personal ways!


Why? Because on that Web page I saw this image:

It's creepy, right? Well, it reminded me of something I saw ages ago - 55 years ago, to be exact - and haven't seen since, until today. One day in 1954 - when I was ten years of age - I happened to be perusing magazines inside the railroad station at Point Pleasant in New Jersey, the town where me and my family lived at the time.

This magazine cover caught my eye; and it's been riding around in my brain ever since:

It's creepy, yes? Anyway, this little kid sure thought so! Once in a great while, over the years, that image would come to mind. Don't ask why, because I've no idea. It happened again today, when I saw the topmost image in this post on that Web page you'd linked. This time, I decided to search for that image from back in 1954; and so I did; and I found it.

By luck, which is what Web searching tends to be anyway, I came across a Web site full of old science-fiction magazine covers. Ta da! There it was: Amazing Stories, the November 1954 edition. Now I know when I first saw it and what the publication was, plus I've got the picture! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Very Happy

OMG! I snagged the Jessica Rabbit image for my background for now! What a great site

Joe - that must have been some memory for you and then to think about it again after all these years and actually find the cover to see again! WOW!!!! I am going back there when the new computer gets hooked up and spend some more time looking / snagging!
