PAAVille Skyline - Wake Island13380 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.

PAAVille on Wake Island -- Circa 19538521 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.

The Arrival -- Honolulu4977 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.

Wake Island Airport - Circa 19534818 viewsMy father, Woody Walsh, was stationed on Wake Island when he worked for PanAm. This was circa 1953.

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.

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

Panoramic Image of the Bridge Between Wake and Peale Islands4034 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.
