1951 Tangier: Archival Family Photo

Summer 1951--My mother Eliane, father Robert, brother Pierre age 4 
and me age 9 deplaning 
from Air France at Tangier airport on a visit to my grandmother who lived 
in an apartment with a terrace overlooking la Corniche. We were living in Ashbourne, Derbyshire, England at the time. Photographer unknown. August 9 is my parents' wedding anniversary. In 1941, during WW11,they were married in a small village in Haute-Savoie in unoccupied France. My father was a liaison officer in the Free French Army. According to family history he was a translator at a meeting between Eisenhower and De Gaulle.
