Your "Besides gathering dirt," is quite apropos, Rickard. 

"Footfalls echo in the memory
Down the passage which we did not take
Towards the door we never opened
Into the rose-garden. My words echo
Thus, in your mind.
                                   But to what purpose
Disturbing the dust on a bowl of rose-leaves
I do not know."

I like the picture but what is the train doing on the skirt in 1939?
(Besides gathering dirt.)
