FAO Schwarz Speedster
This cute little red speedster (a perfect Christmas gift, I would think, for a young man or woman) originated at FAO Schwartz, the famous New York toy store. FAO Schwarz closed in 2015, to the consternation of millions of people around the world, but it has come back with a large Internet presence and also sells its products through other stores, such as HomeGoods here in Ocala, and during this holiday season, at Bergdorf Goodman in New York City.
"Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again." — Henri Cartier-Bresson
