Europe, 1963



this is a photograph I took of the car queuing up (or, as Americans would say, waiting in line) on Sunday afternoon, 18 August, to board a cross-channel ferry. (I should perhaps explain the logic if you can call it that behind the three flags at the back of the car. Id lived in South Africa from 1949 to 1962; Id just spent a year as an AFS student in the United States; and I was a British citizen about to take a British-registered car onto the continent. I was signalling I needed all the understanding I could get.)
