Now, I know that last Monday I promised to show some slides from the 1960s this week. However, I now realize I have just a couple more sets from the 1950s to rescan before moving on. I’m definitely enjoying myself sorting through and attempting to organize this slide collection — but it can be a bit overwhelming at times, especially […]
1950s Odds and Ends — Just before I move on to a bunch of slides from the 1960s, I thought I would share a selection of slides that (for the most part) have left me with some unanswered questions. Maybe seeing them here will jog a memory or two in my family members — or not. Either way, I’ve enjoyed […]
This week, the majority of my images were shot in 1958. I previously shared some of these back in November 2017, but I think they look much better this time around.
My images this week date from 1956 and 1957. Although most of them were labeled with dates, I’m not always sure of the locations — like my first three photos, which seem to have been shot at the same spot. I’d love to think they were in the area of the Nimbus Dam (those hills in the background look very […]
Last week’s photos all dated from the late 1950s, and I was preparing to move on to slides from much later — but then I discovered I have quite a few images from 1953. So I’m going further back in time, grouping them together as much as possible to tell my family stories. I’d really love to know the make […]
Scenes from Grandma’s house, 1957 — I may have mentioned a few times before that many of the old family pictures, arranged within a number of slide carousels, are not actually in chronological order. When the slides themselves aren’t labeled, sometimes it’s hard to tell how to group them together in a way that makes sense to me now. This […]
I’m finishing up the 1958 road trip this week, with some views of Deception Pass, a stop in Port Angeles, and a visit to Tumwater Canyon in the central part of the state. I previously shared these images in Memory Monday posts from Week 59 and Week 60. The cultural significance of Deception Pass State Park is as intriguing as […]
