Uncle Art & Aunt Clara's Trip to Europe - 1970

Perhaps, in part, because the Langdon family had somewhat disbursed throughout the country by the time they made this trip - after coming home, Uncle Art sat down and typed out (a 28 page) memoir of their trip. Dad has one copy of this manuscript and passed it on to be included among his "tales". 

In looking thru Aunt Jeanette's photo's & memorabelia, I came across another copy as well as a postcard from Paris.

I've broken it up (just a little bit, along with taking just a little bit of editorial liberty for posting/publication) - but the full story is here.
