New York City in 1967
otsoNY recently caught up with Texas resident, Josh Burdick, who kindly allowed us to post some of his father’s photographs taken in 1967 whilst on a trip to New York City.
In the 1960s, Josh’s father worked for the FAA as an electronics technician. “My parents were bounced around Texas on different assignments all through the 60s,” explained Josh. “In 1967, they lived in Baltimore for about 8 months, whilst he was on a training course for new FAA computer systems, and as they were on the east coast they decided to take the opportunity to visit all sorts of places like DC, Boston, Gettysburg and New York City.”
Josh continues, “My Mum went along with my three older siblings, Cecil III, Bill and Jenny while being pregnant with Jeff, who was born in that year. Unfortunately I wasn’t born until December 1972, and so missed out on this trip. My mum and the kids would usually sit on a park bench or were waiting in the car whilst my dad hiked up to the top of the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty to shoot these photos.”
“When I was growing up, I would often hear stories about this trip from my folks. They had several boxes of slides, but it wasn't until 2002 that I was able to scan them myself and then I had them professionally done in 2010. It is great to see my father’s work finally in print.
The full collection of photographs are now available on Josh’s website, where they can be purchased for a small fee.
