1964 Iran Syria Turkey

134. Middle East 1964 – Turkey Ankarra to Iran Karaj passing over Syria

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 scans of slides taken by Doris in 1964. For more pictures from the 1964 tour, go here.

Ankarra and then off to Iran
