|The Carroll J. Downing Collection hosts more than
40 photos and more. The CD with the original scans is available, along
with our other collectibles. See the "How You Can Help" page for
Photos all have handwritten names on them. We set them
to text here for the purposes of the search engines... Doing the best we can. Names are
matched against the
ship's log when the ship originally sailed. If we find what looks
like a match, we name the whole name.
We are guessing Fagan on this one. It breaks
our heart when we can't say for sure who is in the photos. In the words
of one, "We fought for every star and strip in the flag."
They deserve so much more than a hasty guess. Alas, the
ravages of time thwart us. However, as long as there is a spark of
electricity to power your computer, these images will be here for you to
gaze upon and wonder at those perilous days long gone.
