[Train wreck in Oradell, NJ]   [1964 New York World's Fair]
Back in the 1960's, there was a major train derailment in Oradell, NJ, a nearby town. I took some pictures, using a cheap plastic box camera and black-and-white film. I don't think the camera had any adjustable features, just a shutter button and a film-advance knob.   Living in New Jersey, we of course went to the 1964 World's Fair, held in New York City. This is a picture of the Unisphere. To visit a web site about the 1964 New York World's Fair, click on this link.

[Portico of the White House, in Washington, DC]   [Military funeral at Arlington National Cemetary]
We visited Washington, DC on one of our earlier camping trips. This is the portico of the White House.

[Yellowstone Gorge, in Wyoming]   [Bear at Yellowstone National Park]
In the mid-1960's, we made a big camping trip out to Yellowstone National Park, in Wyoming (among other places). The left-hand picture is the Gorge of the Yellowstone River. Although you can't tell from the black-and-white picture, the sides of the gorge are actually yellow stone, true to its name. The right-hand picture is a bear along the roadside in the park. Funny, he doesn't look like Yogi Bear! To visit the official web site of Yellowstone National Park, click on this link.
