1957 Italy

94. Italy 1957 – Florence, Pisa, Pompeii and Amalfi, Rome and Siena (Red Ektachrome)

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.


Doris travelled a number of times to various parts of Italy between the mid 50s and late 80s. Links to other places are here.

Photos from Doris’ trip around Italy 1957. These shots used Ektachrome film which seems to have withstood the 60 years since they were taken.


08 Italy 1957 - Florence
Florence Cathedral


09 Italy 1957 - Florence
Outside Florence Cathedral


06 Italy 1957 - Pisa
The basilica from the rear. Note the lack of tourists holding the tower up. That is probably Dessie front centre.

Pompeii and Amalfi

29 Italy
Doris overlooking the Tyrrhenian. My wife has a similar photo from when she went there a few years ago.
30 Italy 1957 - Pompeii
Most of the Pompeii shots were boring. I expect a thousand other sites will have similar images, so I’ve just added this one kids.
33 Italy 1957 - Amalfi Coast
Obviously from hotel or restuarant. Unknown exactly where – but pretty.



16 Italy 1957 - Possibly Rome
Swiss Guard – outside Vatican?


18 Italy 1957 - Possibly Rome
I assume some of the roman ruins in Rome
21 Italy 1957 - Possibly Rome
The basilica should be easy to identify
23 Italy 1957 - Possibly Rome
More roman ruins
24 Italy 1957 - Possibly Rome
If these were in England, people would not be allowed anywhere near them.
25 Italy 1957 Spanish Steps - Rome
Spanish Steps. Very poorly photoshop edited as the light was too light and the shadows too dark.


12 Italy 1957 - Flags Sienna
A practice session for the Flag Parade. I think this is outside a police station judging by the red wagon behind.
13 Italy 1957 - Flags Sienna
Note that everyone is looking at the guy in front (who we can’t see!)
14 Italy 1957 - carabinieri Sienna
Carabinieri looking well dapper.
