Title

Wartime Aerial Survey (1 of 2)

Description

This group of photographs (the first of 2 collections) was taken during World War 2, when primary construction of the facilities on the islands were nearly finished. Many are already in use, and much of the main island looks to be occupied. You can see the various buildings and aircraft stored there, as well as the stark physical changes the landscape underwent to accommodate them.
