Most of the images displayed on this website were collected when I was a Photographer’s Mate in the US Navy from 1957-1961 and several have been donated by photographer shipmates from their personal collections. I continue to seek out and add other images of ships and Naval Aircraft from that era.
I have heard countless stories from my shipmates and other vets of their losing their photos, cruise books and all their other mementos of their time in service to divorces, flooded basements, forgotten seabags left in attics, accidents, tossed during garage cleaning….the list goes on. That’s one of the reasons for this site, so that they might be reunited with a memory or two. It gives me great personal pleasure to hear the stories of their reactions when they receive a photograph as a gift from a friend or family member.
All photographs on this website have been painstakingly digitally re-mastered and are printed on heavy matte lustre paper (high gloss available on request at no extra charge) using the latest in digital printing technology. They are perfect for framing in an office or den. If you or a loved one were aboard any of these ships, or served in any of the squadrons, and don’t have pictures, here’s your chance. What a gift they would make! Think of the memories that would be brought back!

Our prices are far from being “commercial prices” as they barely cover the expense to print and take them to the post office. Considering the costs to maintain this website, this could certainly be considered a “non-profit venture”.
