Union Square, San Francisco, looking north up Powell Street, circa 1958. I believe my parents were in America at the time to attend the 13th Junior Chamber International World Congress at the Hotel Leamington in Minneapolis; I am only assuming this as there is a transparency in the same container in a similar mount of the front of the hotel with a "Welcome JCI" sign under the veranda, so they may have all been photographed and processed around the same time period. If a Shorpy detective can narrow down the year that would be most welcome so I can date these transparencies in this album.
This Kodachrome transparency, taken by my father using a Kodak Retina 1a camera, is one of many that he had photographed over the years; I'm scanning the collection myself, using an Epson V370 photo & slide scanner. As I progress through all the transparencies I will post some more of the interesting late '50s America images here. View full size.
