Young Couple On Journey From East To West Coast USA, August 1965

About this memory

Stephen David Isard and Phoebe Wilson Acheson.

“The car is a VW Beetle bought in California in September 1964. We had spent the summer living in an apartment in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and were driving back across the country to Berkeley, California, where we both lived (separately). We had been having a ‘trial marriage’ you might say. We were married in September 1966 in San Francisco. This was a stop to visit my parents. We moved to Britain in September 1967.” – Phoebe Acheson Isard
