Travel Hostess- Thunder Bay, Canada
Last weeks Fisher Price air stewardess reminded me of this old, souvenir slide, which I've been meaning to post for a while!
Back in the day, before digital cameras, videos and dvds, families would often invite each other round to one anothers houses, to view slides and cine film of their holidays. The quality of peoples own photos were generally, pretty ropey, so a gap in the market emerged and companies began to produce souvenir packs of slides, taken by professional photographers. Quality assured, you could now share those magical moments without embarrassment!
Todays post, of an Ontario Government Travel Bureau Hostess is taken from a pack of 5 travel slides of Thunder Bay, Canada produced by Gaf. Their series of slides was called pana-vue. You can see more from the pana-vue series over at Worldsfairphotos.com and also at disneypix.com. There are lots to choose from at disneypix, but my absolute favourites are of Tomorrowland.
Now, if the response is good to these slides, I could always share with you my set of Calgary stampede slides, featuring an Indian village and chief!!!
