Times Change

I've been meaning to take a photo of this wall hanging at the pediatrician's office for ages now, but it had to be a time when we were in this particular room with a child who wasn't particularly sick. So finally, here it is.

In case you can't see the picture that well, the words selected for the alphabet are distinctly period, which greatly amuses our highly modern pediatrician.

F is for factory.
N is for nun.
Q is for quintuplets.  Perhaps inspired by the Dionne quints?

XYZ on the same panel is also kind of funny.  It's a Zebra on a Yacht, with a mystery package labeled with a question mark - presumably, that's the X variable.

Very clever X indeed

It's funny to see what people choose. We had an ABC puzzle that showed a mitten ... For the letter G. I guess it was supposed to be a glove, but it drove me crazy.
