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.

PEARL HARBOR
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.

I'm gonna be sick!



I really don't like the pairing of the words "goliath" and "spider."
