Amazing

I’ve been scanning those 35mm slides. Though there are many pictures that are of interest to me, personally, every now and then there’s a gem in the mix that’s just some cool scenery or timecapsule, old cars on the road in their time, and so on. I think these are interesting. The featured/cover photo was taken somewhere in Idaho in 1960-61. I think it’s a stunning image. The slides aren’t in any kind of order anymore and I’m using my grandmother’s handwritten notes to sort them out, as well as using clues in the photos themselves.

So far, there have also been these…

Somewhere in the La Sal Mountains, Utah, 1960/61

 

 

Guessing Utah or thereabouts, same trip as La Sal and Idaho pictures. 1960/61

 

 

Windshield view photo taken by my grandmother, driving through Texas, the early 1960s. Billboard to the right says “Lubbock Dodge”.

 

 

Flooding, somewhere in Mississippi or Louisiana, December 1961

 

There’s an old photograph of me sitting on a front porch with my grandfather and great-grandmother that I thought was somewhere in Mississippi, having got my wires crossed from so many trips, but it wasn’t, it was in a little parish town in Louisiana. Thankful for my grandmother’s notations. I’ve always had a tremendous sense of nostalgia, not quite a quarter of the way through these pictures, looking forward to seeing what other treasures they hold.
