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.
I guess I should actually type some words on these posts.
Switzerland 1960. There are a number of full sets of slides (see About) plus some odds. I’ve only included the ones I feel worthwhile – you may like to use the menu (top right) to find other pages for the same trip.
There were no dates on the slides, but they were numbered, mostly.
The trip date has been taken from one of Doris’ journals.
Two women went on the trip, Doris and ‘Dessie’ (shortening of Mrs Dessborough I believe).
It became apparent to me that Doris had incorporated Dessie’s slides into the collection which explained the different slide mounts and curious chronology if the slides are organised strictly by mount number (which I initially did!).
I guess if Doris is in one of the photos, the set is Dessie’s and vice versa.
One of the following has ‘Above Arosa’ written on it.
