Today I have a trio of images from 1961...
I guess I'll start with the worst of the bunch and work my way up! Somewhere in this busy, dark photo is a group of fierce headhunters, brandishing spears and shields and probably a peashooter. Most of the slides that I have of these guys tends to be dark... I guess it was on a side of the river that received little direct sunlight.
Next is a familiar sight showing the southern tip of Tom Sawyer Island, with the mill half hidden by lush foliage. Then you've got the distant Matterhorn, and the Mark Twain reflecting nicely in the river. Say, what's that heading our way?
Why, it's a canoe! I have a few similar images in my collection, and I always like them. I dub this one "postcard worthy".
