Nostalgia versus History

From the satirical magazine Puck, VOL. XXII, No. 508. on January 25, 1888.  This is viewable for free on google books here.

Ah, yes, the quiet life they used to lead in those days sitting  before the dear old open fire-place, with the great log smouldering  -- all  conducive to tender  thoughts and romantic attachments.  But no one has ever mentioned the dear old blow-downs they used to have from that dear old fire-place.
