Throwback Thursday ~ Honeymoon in Vermont and New Hampshire 1983

 A few weeks ago Vincent retired from working at the same company for almost 35 years.  He has a lot of plans for projects, including scanning our collection of slides.  We have an entire floor to ceiling bookcase of slide carousels from his parents, my parents, and from our early college and married years. Santa bought him a nice slide scanner, and this week he started using it.

The first slides he chose to scan were our honeymoon photos.  We drove from Holden, Massachusetts where we were married to Quebec and Montreal, Canada for our wedding trip, including stops in New Hampshire and Vermont.   

Here are the first scans.  Does anyone know how to correct the ugly yellow tinge to the film? We were poor starving students in those days, and we used to order cheap film from Seattle Filmworks instead of buying Kodak film.  We also sent the film to Seattle Filmworks for processing because it was the cheapest option.  We are paying the price now 35 years later.

These photos are of our overnight at the Hanover Inn on the campus of Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire.  We were married on a Saturday, just before the 4th of July.  The only thing I remember about this inn was that there were fireworks in the sky as we drove into Hanover.

Don't you just love the TV? and the fancy luggage?

  1. Love your photos - and having been through the slide-scan process, I know it's both nostalgic and time-consuming. Setting priorities, hubby and I initially scanned slides with people and slides from significant events. Other slides will have to wait.

    1. Oh, my, it sure is time consuming. My husband bought a slide scanner that doesn't have to be tethered to the computer, so he can scan whilst watching TV, or in the kitchen, or out on the patio (in the warmer weather!). It's working out great. He's done over 1,000 slides this week.

  2. Great project! And I do remember those days of mailing away film for developing because it was cheaper....

  3. A lot of times the "yellow" can be eliminated with most simple photo programs. A lot of them have an auto correct feature that will eliminate things like that. I've wanted to comment for awhile but just now got around to it. I'm related to Edmund Littlefield as well among other things. I love your blog!!

    1. Thanks for your kind words about my blog! Yes, I am going to have to invest in a photo program. I only have Paint that came with my computer.
