Aerial Harbor Photos, 1945

Baton Rouge, Louisiana 1945
Dave's dad was a Staff Sergeant in the U. S. Army at a desk job. Somehow, he acquired some aerial photos of western harbors which I have always thought were very interesting. They are stamped "restricted" on the back, but I suspect I can share them now. Double click to see them larger.
The photo above is Barksdale Field in Shreveport, Louisiana in 1945. Note the air field and all of the air planes above the air runways.
The photo above is Point Furman, California 1945.
Los Angeles Harbor, 1944---it looks a bit different now.
Santa Monica, California 1945---the white area is beach.

This one is my favorite---Huntington Beach, California in 1945---look at all of those oil derricks!
