Flashback Monday: Faces of Reston (some more frequent than others)

Do you ever wish you had access to a time machine so you could be instantly transported back to whatever pivotal point of history strikes your fancy? If you've answered "yes," no doubt the first place you've wanted to visit, before ancient Greece in all its glory or perhaps the signing of the Constitution, was a mauve planned community in its prime, before all the Macaroni Grills and vibrant primary colors and whatnot.

In the absence of a functioning time machine, though, you can still go to the Reston Museum, where they're displaying this whimsical stick-your-head-in-the-cutout-and-take-a-photo thingy from 1974. Though this picture makes us wonder whether the folks at the Reston Museum have access to, if not a time machine, some sort of unspeakable human cloning technology, as they seem to have at least two Bob Simon clones on their hands.
