Two American Kids.


For a change, the original photographer has added some comments to the slide "1954 Jan. Pat with Ken in l r chair, both smiling".

So, Hello Pat and Ken!    Where are you now, and what's your story?

Street Scene



No idea where this is, but I'm prepared to have a guess.

Fire Hydrant in foreground looks stereo-typically American.
Preponderance of bright men's shirts.
Chinatown

I'm guessing Hawaii.

Who's with me.

Another Church


I'm sure I've mentioned that 90% of the slides I have are dull.   Churches, scenery, christmas...whatever.

However, that's doesn't mean that the subjects are dull. For example, today we have Notre-Dame de la Garde, in Marseille.

An impressive Catholic Basilica by anyone's standards.

The Sea


A well-focused, correctly exposed slide, with a non-sloping horizon. However, it's almost devoid of any points of interest.

You couldn't even judge the scale of the scenery.  Until you notice the people.

However, the bloke behind him is sensible enough to retain his flat cap.

American scene, I believe.
