1959 - Carolan-Imagery

JW and MJ Carolan Family Vacation West from Beaumont Texas

During the late 1950's and early 1960's James Carolan and Juanita Carolan took their family on a number of exceptional and intense vacations, usually westward. They had four children, me , Janita, Donna and Wilburn. Normally the family camped in a tent trailer, and later a series of trailers and motor homes, big motor homes.


I was 16 years old on this fine trip and documented it as well as I was able with my new Contaflex 35mm camera, using Kodachrome film (slide). The images here are scanned or photographed from the slides, some better than others (much better) but no where close to the quality of the current digital cameras.


.....but this was 58 years ago.
