Island of Saipan 1944.
I posted these photo’s with a long story on Large Scale Planes a dozen year’s or more ago.
In the 1960’s and up until the late 1990’s I was self-employed as a professional documentary 16mm film producer, including still photographer. In 1971 I got a job with CPB/PBS TV of Washington D.C. and went to American Samoa to help produce 16mm color films.
During my “Sojourn” to Samoa, I went to the island of Saipan on a film assignment in 1974. While there, my tour guide took me all over the island and I captured these photos of what was left on the island after WW-II was over. Enclosed is a photo of me with my beautiful tour guide. What more can I say.
