I previously shared these images back in January 2018. The slides are all stamped May 1971, and as I mentioned in my earlier post it still fascinates me how much Sacramento’s airport has grown and changed over the past few decades. This must have been one of my first visits to the fairly new Sacramento Metropolitan Airport (as it was […]
Spring/Summer 1962 — My last few slides from the 1960s cover our family trip to the northern coast of California, specifically Patrick’s Point State Park. Even though I can’t really remember the details of this visit, I do have a warmly nostalgic feeling about Patrick’s Point and a burning desire to revisit and hike the same trails. I originally posted […]
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! This week I have a few images from my very first Christmas; after looking through these slides, I only wish there were more of them. Although I don’t have any actual memories from this particular Christmas, I do remember some of the items pictured — at least those that were still around a few years […]
About a month ago I described what you could expect to see from my family slides in the next few weeks: … I’m briefly returning to boxed slides from 1957 — this week to Washington, D.C., and later to Chicago, Iowa, and San Diego, California. Did I say San Diego? Well, the box is labeled “San Diego 1959” — but […]
This week, I’m revisiting Chanute Air Force Base as it was in 1957. In December 2017 I wrote a bit about the history of Chanute and its decommissioning in 1993. Even after the base closed, the Octave Chanute Aerospace Museum continued to display a number of airplanes until its closure in November 2015. The B-50 Superfortress (above) was a redesign […]
Chicago 1957 — I originally shared these images back in December 2017 and January 2018. Every time I look through these pictures, my desire to visit Chicago and see the museum (and all the other sights) for myself gets stronger! This dollhouse, belonging to silent film star Colleen Moore, was built in 1928 and has been on display at the museum […]
I originally shared these pictures in 2017 (see Memory Monday, Week 55). I’m not sure of the location of the first three images — my mom’s best guess was “somewhere in Pennsylvania.” The bottom two are from Niagara Falls and Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
