White Cliffs of Dover
My mother shed no light on which trip these shots of Dover were shot on. Troop ship from Germany to England? Tourist excursion? A day in Calais? I warmed up the top one considerable and I think it looks a lot more realistic but I wasn’t there so perhaps the cold greys of the bottom shot are more accurate. Here you can read the story behind these Kodachrome shots my father took in 1955-56.
Where are all the people? And only a single Beetle on the street?
Another shot in front of Buckingham Palace from my father’s collection of Kodachromes shot in the mid 1950s on his Voigtländer (see the full story here).
Tower of London
I wonder if the top image isn’t at Windsor but judging from the hodge-podge of slides there’s nothing to suggest a trip to Windsor so I’m assuming this is also at the Tower. See this post for the story of these slides my father shot in the 1950s. I like the bowler and brolly man in the top image and the little boy out of an Enid Blyton story in the bottom one.
Update: my mother confirms (see comments) that the top photo was indeed taken at Windsor. So I suppose I should update the post title. The Two Towers?
