About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Ready for Takeoff

Shorpy is moving to a new server tonight, so there may be times when the site is unavailable. See you when we get back! 4x5 Kodachrome transparency of Civil Air Patrol plane (Stinson 10A) at Bar Harbor, Maine, by John Collier, June 1943. Full size. A couple more here and here.

 

Stinson Model 10A

Ground view of Stinson model 10A, NC36793. This view photo was taken in 1943 at Bar Harbor airport, Maine. At the time this airplane was flown by the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) on anti submarie missions off the Eastern seaboard of the United States. A CAP mechanic has the right cowling opening inspecting the engine. (http://www.stinsonflyer.com/avphoto/stn10-01.jpg) (From: http://personalpages.tdstelme.net/~westin/ac-1.htm)
