I ♥ Faces Week 33: nostalgic travels

I Faces is going back in the day this week.  
The challenge is to present a photo that "brings back a nostalgic feeling for you." Let's just start out by saying that I had trouble remembering what exactly nostalgia was!
Yes, the English teacher is still on vacation.
I guessed (correctly) that it was a fond remembering of the days of old (yesteryear, if you will). And I just knew I had nothing that fit the requirement. I mean, Ya is the spitting image of my grandfather who was raised in early 21st century New York, but I haven't been able to commandeer any knickers, a satchel hat and those too cute brown baby lace-up boots. Yet. We do have a hat that is similar, but Ya is in his anti-hat phase and hasn't worn it since Easter.

So... here's what I ended up with: a shot from a trip to the past where the property owner still had one of those cool tricycles made of metal that looks just like the trike I had as a child (except mine was fire engine red and had a cool wicker basket to hold my doll babies.)
