Pretzel anyone ?

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.

Old State House, Boston 1961 and Now

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).

Times Square 1957 & 2013

Sorry for long time without updates. I was busy at work and take a trip to Uruguay and Argentina for a month with my wife. Now I’m back with new updates in a regular basis.

For now, have a look in this photography from Times Square in 1957. When I bought this slide I miss any information about the year of the photo. But the movie “Fire Down Below” and the old Hotel Claridge (left side, at southeast corner of Broadway and 44th street) give me the right idea.
