Photographer's Note

Another picture from Lisbon taken by myself at the tender age of seventeen during the course of a school cruise aboard MS Dunera in July, 1965. I suspect that many of the young people you see in the picture were pupils from our cruise, but I don't recognise any of them as there were pupils from several schools across Scotland other than my own on this trip.

This is Rossio Square, properly known as King Pedro IV Square (or Praça de D. Pedro IV), as it appeared 54 years ago, congested with parked cars. If you click on Map:view (or if you enter these co-ordinates into Google maps: 38.713280, -9.139212), you should be able to see where I was standing when I took this shot and, if you drag Google's little yellow man down to that point, you will see that today the square appears much less cluttered and both the south fountain and the column bearing the statue of King Pedro IV are much more clearly visible.

Another Kodachrome colour slide simply copied using a light box and with a macro lens on my digital camera with some touching up of dust spots, etc. in Photoshop.
