12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Time stands still

The coats hang where they have always hung. The rubber overshoes rest in their usual place on the well worn carpet. An older bachelor brother has kept home the same as it has always been: the same kitchen table and chairs, the same yellow walls and old red checkered tile floor and well worn threshold. It is the same throughout the home place. Here, time stands still. Here, the grown children can still find their childhood home.
