On The Road

Folks,
I found a few lost submissions, so they will run later this week and early next.  We shall see where things go from there.

 

Today, a picture from about 1940, taken by my grandmother in Baranquilla, Colombia. It is titled “My baggage transfer at Baranquilla”. This was, I assume, the transfer from water-based transportation (seaplane, ship, etc.) to the airport for a white-knuckle flight to Bogota.

 

 

Have a great day, we’ll re-convene tomorrow for some 9-11 memories.

    Pictures are such an astonishing window into that moment in the past, and this one is especially good because it’s from far away AND long ago.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Great photo. I tell my students that while they are young they should all do something that will amaze their grandkids…

    Yes, this one especially. The big trunk, the little cart, the smoking factory in the distance, all those guys with wide brimmed hats in the tropical sun. Coulda been Casablanca!!
