Moscow 1960

In 1960 the African Caravan met the European Caravan. Many of the African Caravanners went through Europe that summer.

The picture taken in Moscow shows several trailers that went through Africa, Europe and then the Soviet Union.

I can ID Oscar Payne and Joe Bos. I'm not sure of the other trailer (s).

Airstream does it again, and African Caravanner's keep on truckin'.

Wally passed away in 1962. He was on this caravan in spirit only.

Wally had this on the burner

Wally had thought about an overland trip through Asia. I have an information set of a French Travel rally from Euope to India.

Wally acquired this and that, from here and there about travel.

When the ATW Caravan was planned Andy Charles became the tour leader.

The ATW Caravan was a very exciting and rough trip.

PeeWee,
Small details but, just wondering..
How was the registration for all of these vehicles handled?
Did they use the same license plate from South Africa, all the way thru Russia, etc?
Were the VIN numbers of the Airstream trailers preserved in any way unofficial or official records~?(By Airstream maybe? since it was a company sponsored trip?)
While we are on the oversea subject...What ever became of those Airstream trailers used on the China Caravan lead by Wally?
Just a few questions that have never been answered in my mind..
If You have the answer..?

The dates indicated on the captions then are incorrect. They are dated as being taken in 1964 - should have been 1960 then I guess.

You can also purchase a framed photo from Time-Life as well. Here's the link to the Russian caravan photos - just click on any one and the info to purchase a photo will be on the right-hand side of the page.
