Title

Early 1940s National Archives Aerials

Description

These images, primarily aerials from 1941 and 1942, show the progression of Naval construction activities on Palmyra. There are a few ground shots of buildings as well, showing freshly finished structures.

The truly unique property of these photos is the detail you can see of the atoll, prior to many of the larger construction projects, like the extending of Cooper island and the road works. Many of the early buildings can be seen in full detail as well.

Special thanks to the Nature Conservancy for providing use these photos!
