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 ?
I always prefer to use vintage negatives, photos and slides to show a more accurate view from the streets, but sometimes the only option I have is a postcard. Like this one from the B & B Chevrolet Dealership, in Detroit (MI).
