Old Time Photos Of Yuma, Arizona

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 22nd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at the Paradise Casino in Yuma, Arizona. I was expecting to leave here recently, but I’ve changed my mind. I currently have reservations at Thousand Trails in Palm Desert, California, February 13th. Between now and then???? For the moment I remain in Yuma.

 

 

I just love the ability to change plans at a moments notice. As I tell everyone…All my plans are firmly etched in Jello!

 

 

Since I’ve been coming to the Yuma area for a number of years during the Winter, I’ve explored the area pretty thoroughly. Rather than re-visit each place again, I’ve decided to show photos I’ve taken in the past. All these places are within about a one-hour drive from Yuma.

 

 

 

This blog was first published in January, 2015…

 

 

During my wanderings around Yuma the last few days, I’ve made an effort to find some black and white photos of days gone by here in Yuma. I found 52…most under glass for preservation purposes…but subject to reflective glare which makes for difficult photography.

 

 

I love the old black and white photos. Hard to believe all the folks are dead by now. The once mighty Colorado River was about one mile wide…because of man it’s now down to about 50 feet at its narrowest.

 

 

Here are eight…

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

 Yesterday was partly sunny and 76 degrees. Forecast for today is partly sunny and 75 degrees.

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine.
