Smells from my childhood;
Coal Smoke. Our house had a coal furnace and when you added coal, the smoke had a distinctive smell.
Smell of the pines at Scout Camp.
Clean Sheets that had been hung outside on the clothes line to dry.
Soup cooking in the Elementary School Cafeteria.
Tomato Vines. The vines and/or leaves in the tomato patch have a beautiful smell."The only 2 things that money can't buy is true love and home grown tomatoes"!
Ozone before a rain shower/storm.
Our town had a Tannery that gave off a sulfur smell.
The town 9 miles away had a papermill. Could smell it when the wind was coming from that direction.
Lived in Uniontown PA for a while. Could smell the Boney Piles in Clymer from the coal mines.
