Visit to New York … 1977

Early February 1977 my wife and I travelled from Western Australia to attend a Motor Vehicle Convention in New Orleans (NADA) … arguably the largest such convention in the world. A wonderful experience followed by time in Florida and then New York . The snow and ice was still a metre thick in places around New York … it was COLD! They were much happier days for the people of United States of America, as the Trade Buildings were a major tourist destination and we enjoyed the wonderful view from one of them … a sign in the lift to the top of one building reading: “You are travelling ¼ of a mile into the sky!” Just great!

The statue of Liberty was another favourite visit, as were the Plays on Broadway, although we didn’t have reserved tickets and had to stand at the back of the theatres for the duration of the shows. Better than not seeing them at all.

New York, I’ll go back there again soon!
