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 […]

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 […]
Sequim Bay, Washington State — Our next stop on this northbound road trip is Sequim Bay State Park, located in the northeastern corner of Washington’s Olympic Peninsula. This may have been only a brief visit, since I can find only two images, both night shots. Below, you can just make out the shiny 1957 Plymouth Belvedere and the darker outline […]
I’m fairly sure I’ve shared all of these slides at some point (most of them are here); but some of them got separated from the rest and it wasn’t until now that I realized they all belong together. The images are from a 1958 road/camping trip my family took through Northern California and up into Washington State. I’ve tried to […]
