No RIBS, just North America

I've been tidying up some loose ends lately. One of them was a box of Kodachrome slides that I was given from my late Grandfather's personal effects. He was a keen traveler and toured extensively in Europe during the 1960s. Around 1967 he visited the Western States. Here are a few digitised slides that might interest you LA/Frisco types. I'll spare you the endless shots of the Grand Canyon and the many desert pics

I swear that must be the man from U.N.C.L.E. in the first pic. [<Joke ] My grandfather's surname was Cameron, so that explains the other pic - musta been delighted to see that

I like them a lot, I was not even born when these would have been taken or for a good while yet but I love looking at photography. I really like the hotel and street shot, they both seem to capture the freedom and optimism of that generation. Very stylish

The man from UNCLE was/is Robert Vaughn. He does TV ads for local stations in New England. That's not him.

Thanks, I forgot to put a winking smiley after that comment. So yeah, another bit of humor goes MIA but hey, at least you knew that I was referring to Vaughn and not McCallum
