Photograph article dated April 20, 1964 partially reads, "This is the city most Americans are hunting for when they go abroad - and never find. It is too far out of the way. It is an overnight train trip from Madrid to Gibralter and then two hours by steamer - or 20 minutes by air - to the north coast of Africa. Everywhere else, Americans find foreign-looking people, but always with things and people intermixed with what we were familiar with before. And the novelty of the situation has lost its force. Tangier, on the other hand, is foreign from top to bottom. It is an amazing city of contrasts... Tangier is one of the oldest cities in the world. It has been mentioned in history for 3,000 years. And it was the beginning of a town when Hercules landed here 4,000 years ago." This is part of a series of articles by Valley Times staff writer Ralph Clark, on a European tour.
