Memory Monday slide redux, Week 11

Visiting “Grandma Pat” at Leisure World in Seal Beach

As I go through my collection of family slides (again), I can’t help but wonder how each image wound up where it sits in the various slide carousels. Why do some of them have handwritten notes while most have nothing to hint at when and where they were shot? And why are they so wildly out of order? I’ll probably never know the answers. My images this week were all produced in the 1970s — except for the one above, which I’d date somewhere around 1968 or 1969 — and I’ve tried to put them in roughly chronological order.

The last group of slides were developed in January 1974.
