Honolulu Airport232 viewsI can only guess at the date of this photograph -- late 1950's or early 1960's. The old Honolulu Airport terminal is behind the PanAm airplane. I love the PanAm attendants doing things at the gate itself. No air bridges. My father with Nana: not sure who's going where.

Pan Am StratoCruiser Aircraft - Honolulu Airport210 viewsI remember flying from Honolulu to Bangkok, most of it via StratoCruiser. We dressed for the flight. There was a lounge downstairs, which we reached via a spiral staircase. We flew Honolulu - Wake - Guam - Manila - Hong Kong and then on to Bangkok.

PAAVille on Wake Island -- Circa 19538518 viewsMy father, Woody Walsh, took a a series of photos from (I would guess) the tower at the airport of the "skyline" of PAAVille on Wake Island. This panorama is two of the slides stitched together with modern software.

PanAm Boeing Stratocruiser 377 in Honolulu, Circa 19494753 viewsI did a Google search on this aircraft, N1025V. It was the first of 21 Stratocruisers delivered to PanAm (delivered on January 31, 1949). At the time it was called "Clipper America," although that doesn't seem to be the name in this photograph. (PanAm apparently had many aircraft called "Clipper America" over the years.) N1025V is now sold as a model. The real N1025V was sold to the Israeli Air Force in 1963 as a cargo plane, and last flew in March 1974.

PAAVille Skyline - Wake Island13369 viewsI would guess this in the main intersection of PAAVille on Wake Island, photographed by my father, Woody Walsh, circa 1953. He took a series of slides, and these two images were stitched together with modern software. I like the one lone soldier walking in the lower right hand corner --- he's the only sign of "traffic."

Main Street on Wake Island - PAAVille9980 viewsMy father lived on Wake Island for quite a while in the early 1950's when he worked for PanAm. Not much traffic.

Wake Island from the Air1473 viewsMy father, Woody Walsh, was stationed by PanAm on Wake Island in, I believe, 1953. At the time Wake Island was a refuelling airport for the China Clippers en route from the West Coast to the Orient.

Panoramic Image of the Bridge Between Wake and Peale Islands4029 viewsAs best I can tell from the map of Wake Island this is the bridge between Wake Island and Peale Island. The water beneath leads into the lagoon. It appears that the bridge is under construction. I think this photo --- actually two slides stitched together --- is circa 1953.

Empty Stand at the Wake Island Airport - Circa 19534160 viewsWith, I suspect, the "skyline" of PAAVille in the background.

Gap Between Peale and Wake Islands from the Air1239 viewsBased upon the map of Wake Island I think this is the passage into the lagoon between Wake Island and Peale Island.
