Hello – Welcome to WDEOD, a site full of Doris’ photographs!
Its purpose is to share the shots she took in her 50+ years of travel. I’m trying to do a post a film – so one tour may have many posts.
To see what I’ve put up so far, use the menu (three lines up there ↑ if you are on a phone or tablet) to go to a place or a year.
These are lantern slides.
Alongside the sides, we were given a couple of boxes of journals, itineraries and tiourist leaflets. At the back of one was a list Doris made of her visits. Austria was mentioned a number of times and I’m guessing, as she switched to Kodak mounts in the mid-1950s that these particular slides date to 1950.
As you may see, the slide is quite dirty despite my careful attempt to clean it. For my last birthday I got a Canon 9000F/II scanner which can remove dust and scratches. The downside is that scanning takes longer and sometimes the colours go awry.
If you would like to see where else Doris visited, select somewhere from this map (may not work on mobiles)
