Title

Photo Collection: Palmyra under the CAA

Description

For several years, starting in 1948, a small colony of Americans lived on Palmyra under the employ of the CAA (forerunner of the FAA). These photos show the daily life of those residents, including a Christmas gathering, their makeshift "Main Street", and many others. The comparison photo shows the main barracks building in 1948, and then 30 years later in 1979, when Eugene Norton, who was a child in the original colony, returned to Palmyra with his wife to visit and reflect.
