In 1955, when I was 6 years old, my father made a 3 months journey to the USA and took back a great number of slides, taken with his old Leica. As we did not have TV yet, this was one of my strongest impressions when I was very young.
I have no idea if -- beyond the personal memories -- these pictures are of any value, maybe they are quite banal. But they show how he saw "America" -- a continent that he seriously considered to emigrate to. In this little Website, you can see some of what he took back.
