1968 India

206. India 1968 – Other People’s Photos

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 shots from Doris’ India trip of January / February 1968.

Links to the India 1968 tour are here.

This is not really a set. I assume that Doris asked her travelling companions for duplicates of photos. I remember her friend and neighbour (who sorted out everything after Doris died) saying that Doris rarely thought other’s photos were better than her own (perhaps she was right).

These are in no particular order and could be from any of the States that she visited.

After this, its goodbye to India [1]
