    Standing on the platform in Braintree in 1948, waiting for the train to Boston — my mother, my sister and I. Dressed in Sunday best — white hats, gloves, patent leather shoes, ready for shopping, hamburgers at Coldstone’s, sundaes at Brigham’s, delicious hot fudge spilling over the sides and onto the plate.

    —ELAINE TAMMI, Sandwich
