Created in the early 1980s, I have inscribed the inside front cover, and dated 21/10/1991. "Most of these photographs were taken on a trip across America during the summer of 1969, between the end of the 2nd year at the LCP and the start of the final year. A few of the pictures (deer hanging from tree, Brawley Hotel etc) were taken when traveling with Judy through America in 1971. HWS.”<br />
<br />
On the Road Again, is from four road trips by Greyhound Bus across and around America in 1969, 1971, 1999 and 20001. After the 1971 road trip I put the work away for thirty years, and then in 1999 and 2001 I travelled once again by Greyhound Bus and occasional car hire making the same mental journey.  (No route planned, I just always caught the first bus out of town going more or less clockwise around the country.) On the third and fourth trip I wrote a word diary about the experience, but never made photographs of the people included in the diary. <br />
