1969 Italy

253. Italy 1969 – Rome

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 had visited Rome before in the late 1950s and took some of the same shots then. Her 1969 trip is much more detailed.

One and a half sets of red films are included here. I’ve separated the Vatican out.

You’ll see that it seems to be a round trip from the Ponte Vittorio Emanuele II past the Piazza Navona, through the Forum and back again.

    1. My wife knew Doris for the last couple of years of her life and would visit her at the house, then an old people’s home and finally the hospital. They spoke about places they’d been which how the slides came up. Doris was, in her words “a little cockney girl” and took great delight in surprising Oxford Dons when she’d clamber in next to them on a small aeroplane in some remote place. After she died we went to collect the slides, which her friend had collected in the front room. Just glancing around the room I spotted a slide on an armchair. It was ‘Aleppo – Beehive Houses’. Lifting the cushion revealed a load more. We did another search and found odd ones here, there and everywhere.
