1974 Gambia

388. The Gambia 1/6

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’m not sure of the time line as to whether Doris visited The Gambia immediately after Ethiopia or whether she went home in between. The Ethiopia slides mounts were all in German, which points either to her either getting caught up in an alternative universe where the Kaiser won the war or having them developed somewhere different to usual. The Gambian slides are back to English.

There are actually seven distinct sets, but one had a single worthwhile picture, so I’ve included it elsewhere. Apart from a dock scene and a couple within town, there is nothing to say where each set was shot, so I’ll just publish them roll by roll.
