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.
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?

Cash gets about a bit. He was also the first westerner to find out Stalin was dead.
I didn’t knew that. Thanks for the info.
these are so great…I adore Johnny Cash…he was one of a kind
Yes, he was.
Lovely moments CG! There’s something so enchanting about old film photographs!
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.
Love the walk in the past and especiallyJohnny. I just listened to him sing Hurt from NIN.
I like Mr. Cash’ version of it. I also like “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and “Personal Jesus” from that same album.
fabulous photos. I’m a Johnny Cash fan.
Me too. My dad used to play Johnny Cash for me when I was a kid.
Very cool shots!
Love the shot of JC.
Thank you Richard. I grew up with him on the record player.
Reblogged this on Oyia Brown.
Thanks for the re-blog Oyia.
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.
I love that photo too: it’s hanging on the wall at my office. 🙂
The photo in this post was new to me as well. I tried to do an internet search for it, but couldn’t find it. I did find a similar one in the Jerusalem Post Archives and that’s how I figured out that the photo probably originates from them. Hopefully they won’t give me any hassle for publishing this photo.
Here’s the link to the article with a similar photo:
