Goto next slide#6: Memory Lane

The Definition:

memory lane : an imaginary path through the nostalgically remembered past – usually used in such phrases as a walk down memory lane

Editor's Note:

"This definition seems so poetically right that you might think it has always existed. But the editor who wrote it in the early 1980s struggled to come up with this wording and to make sure that it fit not only in the exact phrase mentioned (a walk down memory lane) but also in many other similar phrases and contexts."
