Photographer's Note

I will not remain forever in Algeria in 1975. Perhaps one or two more pictures and then I will move through the years to some other country and another time.

This photo is from the city of Annaba in the northeastern corner of Algeria, near the Tunisian border. This was my first glimpse of Algeria after arriving by train from Tunis. Unfortunately I have very vague memories of this city and my diary from that journey doesn't add much. I noted that the city looked extremely French, that I ended up in a far too expensive hotel, that the strictly regulated currency was ridiculously overrated and that the dinner I had was almost as expensive as in Sweden.

I arrived in the evening and the next day I just spent a couple of hours of sightseeing in the centre before proceeding by bus. During those hours I took two (yes, two) photos. This is one of them, so it's a rarity. It is scanned from a Kodachrome slide.
