What is that smell? And how would you describe it? Musty, of course, but it’s something not quite that. This comes to mind because another old Life magazine arrived in today’s mail. Its aroma, somehow acquired somewhere along its 59 years of life, transports me back to the old St. Vincent de Paul store on Lake Union. The old main Goodwill store off Dearborn Street had that smell, too, but few of today’s thrift emporia do. Maybe those who know such things can fill us in in the science of this olfactory phenomenon?
