I’m starting a new category today: is called “Bird’s Eye”. The objective of this new session is to show aerial views from US cities from my archives of slides. And to begin, let’s see this scan from one 6×6 slide from Boston.
This amazing photo from 1963 shows the Prudential Center area under construction. Apparently the picture was taken from one of the top floors of the Prudential Tower (also under construction and completed in 1964).
Ahh Oregon! One of the states in the North West coast of the United States, also known as the Beaver State. Oregon has many small towns and today I’ll show one of the most charming of them: Jacksonville
The photography bellow, taking at the crossing of West Main Street and South Oregon Street, shows the City Hall in 1973:
I really love when I found slides from travellers. They always show some interesting pictures of public places in a more relaxed way than taken by locals, since tourists always have a different way of portraying the city.
This slide from december 1970 shows a commom everyday scene of Philadelphia. And for many people not be worth a photo, but worth to these three people: one stop to eat some pretzels.
One of my favorites cities in America is Boston. I just visited once in 2012, for a week, but I can’t wait to return. Maybe in 2014 yet…
The following picture shows the Old State House, right in downtown. I believe the two ladies in dresses are together with who take the photo. There is no mention about who is those women in the slide’s frame, the photographer just take note about the month (june) and the year (1961).
Hello folks! I am planning to make more frequent updates for now on. And I’ll start today a new category here called “Vintage Album“, where there is no comparative “Then and Now” but great photos from the past directly from my original archives.
The first photography is from 1958 and features a couple in front of a house, somewhere in California. Unfortunately there is no information about the couple in the picture. The car looks like a 1957 Ford Thunderbird.
It seems a simple and happy life in the suburbs, huh ?
