Time Stands Still

Stand in line of an early morning to buy your fresh scallops when the ship comes in, and when you walk through the door, Yesteryear greets you! The 5# boxes of scallops are wrapped in butcher paper, and the room itself shows no sign of modern upgrade.

Of course, had you come for your scallops a decade ago, each box would be opened to show you the contents, then carefully wrapped in the pink butcher paper and tied with twine...

Time moves a little faster now, and everything is "prepackaged"!
Sounds wonderful.

@dailypix They don't come much fresher than that! All the better topped of with "the quaint experience"!
