1950s Austria Lantern

5. Austria 1950 – St Anton, Innsbruck and Kufstein (and a Tyrolean trio)

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 tourist 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.

Here are her photographs. Either scroll down the page to see the pictures or click on one to open lightbox and use its functions.

If you would like to see where Doris visited, select somewhere from this map or use the Category drop down

Doris has photos from 71 out of 217 countries. That is 32.72%.
