The Arthur Riley Archive - 1940s Bari

24 Feb 2021 11:46AM   Views : 446 Unique : 255

When my Dad was stationed in Bari, Italy, with the RAF, during WWII he found himself very much attracted to the place. It was partly the art, the museums and theatres and partly Gina. Gina we know little about, but we do have his postcards from around 1942. These are the commercial cards of the day and they have survived very nicely, kept cool and in the dark. I'm going to share these now, and one thing that is interesting to do is to Google these places and look at them as they are now. As regards the cards as images, people are buying these and collecting them, and indeed are even buying old slide collections as well. They are a glimpse into the past......

Google Earth is the place to look at these today, and we can even "walk" the streets virtually if we wish.
