Photographer's Note

Going home from a long visit to Italy in the summer of 1969 I travelled with a friend in his car through Yugoslavia and Hungary among other countries. As we had reached West Germany and were travelling north from Munich, we were very keen to see the ancient city of Bamberg in the northern part of Bavaria. We had been studying art history during the past year and were anxious to see the famous 11th–13th century Romanesque cathedral, featuring a number of marvellous sculptures.

I don't remember anything about this picture which shows the river Regnitz, but I guess it must be fairly close to the centre of the city.

Concerning the title of the photo, Summer of '69 was a song recorded by Bryan Adams in 1984. In the West German singles chart it peaked at #82, according to Wikipedia. It was more successful in other countries.

This photo was scanned from an Agfacolor CT18 slide.
