Old holiday slides

Post by BernardSamba » Sun Jan 14, 2018 9:06 pm

Just scanned these from slides which are deteriorating rapidly, they are from various locations in Europe from the mid sixties through to the early eighties. I do have some video of the van being offloaded by crane from the Innesfallen, a Swansea -Cork ferry before the days of drive-on drive-off. I will try to add that to the file soon. The van is in two different liveries as it was painted in Ford colours in about 1970/71.

I've just converted old family films and that shows camping in a Bay and Notch around Europe. Trying to get the number plates to see if they're still about.

Hi Bernard, great photos.... certainly well used during your childhood!

Couple of questions....
What was the big red canvas thing on the front of the rack? Was it like a roof bag?
You seem to have plastic covers on all the seat cushions so you can use them outdoors?
Nice to see the awning sides being used... even just making a cup of tea! Hahahahaha

Thanks for sharing, they were great to look through.
