Pearl Harbor|The Photographs
December 7, 1941
Some of you will have to go to a museum to see what a Brownie camera looked like?
Here is a simple picture of what we are talking about. . .
Isn't is amazing how a film could last so long in a camera without disintegrating?
Fantastic photos taken 68 years ago, photos stored in an old Brownie Camera. Very interesting photos; what quality from 1941.
Pearl Harbor photos found in an old Brownie stored in a foot locker.
And somewhat recently taken to be developed.
THESE PHOTOS ARE FROM A SAILOR WHO WAS ON THE USS QUAPAW ATF-11O.
December 7th, 1941
And, as a personal note:
I'd like to dedicate this posting to the mother of a very good friend who was stationed at Pearl Harbor on that day, shaken from her bed, who then made her way through the day as a nurse. Everyone has a story. More often than not, you have to stop long enough and listen.
