PAAVille Skyline - Wake Island20508 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 - PAAVille10270 viewsMy father lived on Wake Island for quite a while in the early 1950's when he worked for PanAm. Not much traffic.

PAAVille on Wake Island -- Circa 19539552 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.

Don Nassie with Tahitian Shell Lei6569 viewsI think this was taken as a publicity photo for Shirl-iti -- to sell Tahitian shell leis and woven hats. Kahala, the 1960's.

The Arrival -- Honolulu5920 viewsMy parents met at Leyland Powers, a school of theater and broadcast in Boston (long gone, I'd guess -- Google comes up with nothing). They drove across country and then took a plane (shown) to meet my maternal grandparents in Hawaii. On the way, they got married in Nevada. This photo shows Birdie (my aunt), my father, mother, and grandmoter at Honolulu Airport, summer 1948. I can imagine it was an interesting arrival.

PanAm Boeing Stratocruiser 377 in Honolulu, Circa 19495470 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.

The Comfort Station5337 viewsThe location and date of this photograph are unknown, but I'm guessing it's not Hawaii. My grandfather, Baba, with my aunt Birdie outside the "comfort station."
