Chinatown

On the same 1964 trip as the last few posts, my parents stopped in San Francisco briefly (almost 9 years too late for the first reading of Ginsburg’s Howl). You can read about the story of these Kodachrome slides here.

Hope you’ve been noticing how many VW Beetles there have been in all these shots, stretching back to the mid-1950s…

Lonesome Pine?

And now, for the next handful of posts, we return to my father’s Kodachrome slides, mostly from 1964 and the American West (see the original post about these slides here). That summer, while my brother and I remained with our grandparents in Sacramento, my parents and uncle buggered off to San Francisco, Reno and Yosemite National Park.

Another of my father’s Kodachrome slides in New York (read about the history of these here). This one was taken in Central Park between 1962 and ’64. That’s me coming down the hill on the sled behind what is now called the Diana Ross Playground (and was just the playground when I was little).
