    Excellent post and so many great links, Katerina! Loved the photos – amazing how things have changed over the years (people knocking on your window in the morning to wake you before the invention of alarm clocks – for instance). Wow!

    I’d love to add a link to your post here on my Weekly WrapUp blog hop (formerly known as Feature Friday) when it starts on Friday (May 2nd) – if that would be okay with you? It’s too good not to share! 😀
