Artistic Cars

 
These photos were taken at Montclair State University in Montclair, New Jersey, sometime during the mid-1990s.

I love the singer P!nk



There's always some song stuck in my head and "Raise Your Glass" by Pink is the current one. 
 
When I first heard this song I thought that it was just a party anthem, but when I saw the video I realized that it was for everyone who feels like an outsider. 
 
That's how I felt as a child, too! 
 
I love her "Rosie the Riveter", the iconic image from World War II (above)!



 
I've been a fan of Pink's since her song "Who Knew", which I find haunting.

For some reason there is an antique car inside this room, hiding behind the counter.

Greenville Railroad Park & Museum in Pennsylvania

Railroad Park in Greenville, Pennsylvania. This past summer I visited the Greenville Railroad Park & Museum in Pennsylvania.

Here is the inside of one of the trains. How did they learn the functions of the different knobs? They look so similar.

Here is the switching control board, where one man was in charge for many years. It must have been an interesting job, as well as having great responsibility.

Greenville, Pennsylvania - looks like old times

dirt road

I was in rural Greenville, Pennsylvania (not far from the Ohio border) a few months ago. These small country towns look almost unchanged in some aspects as they did many years ago.
