Sepia Scenes - Sepia Arrival
Sepia Scenes arrives, and the monochrome memories seem to take to our favorite monochrome.
In that envelope full of old pictures that were found in the garage, I found this gem of my dad.
The year is 1970, the place is on the tarmac of JFK airport in the New York City borough of Queens. This is an early flight taken on the brand new Being 747 of the classic Pan American World Airways. This I believe was not too far from the inaugural flight of 21 January 1970.
The terminal 3 Worldport (I am sure that host Mary remembers JFK then...) was not yet modified for the much larger 747, so one took the steps down outdoors. And minus the current security, pictures from the ground could be taken. Of course, jet travel back then was nicer, and the duty free stuff was probably a bargain. The antique edit of the original B&W seems so perfect on a sunny winter day. See more at Mary’s fun meme!
