B&W Sunday: Israel 1970′s & Johnny Cash

This is my second post in my series with retro photos from Israel: «Israel 1970′s». This time I’ve also chosen to add a photo that was sent to me by one of my contacts. It’s from one of Johnny Cash’s many visits to Jerusalem. His first visit took place in 1966 when Mr. Cash was thirty-four. The other photos, also from my contact, is typical family photos of the era. 


Johnny Cash in Jerusalem, by unknown photographer. The photo most likely belongs to Jerusalem Post Archives.

The photo of Johnny Cash most likely belongs to Jerusalem Post Archives, because I know that they shot some photos of Mr. Cash on this visit. I’m not sure about the year, but perhaps this was on Johnny Cash and June Carters honeymoon to Israel in 1969?

    • I actually bought some film for my old camera a while back. I haven’t shot a lot of photos yet, but I’m taking some film photos every now and then just for fun. I prefer digital though.

  2. Love the walk in the past and especiallyJohnny. I just listened to him sing Hurt from NIN.

  3. The best photos Ive ever seen of Cash are the old ones in B/W like this one. My favourite is the picture giving a menacing finger to the photographer.

    Very nice of them to have sent you this shot. I’ve never seen this one before.
