Recommended Posts

I just read this......."The recently discovered wreckage of the USS Hornet (CV-8), which was sunk in the Battle of the Santa Cruz Islands during WWII, shows an International Harvester aircraft tug still on board".

There was a post on Facebook about photos and how things like this are high-definition but every bank picture of a robber is a grainy unrecognizable photo?

A camera in a building that lives a sheltered life or a camera in a atmospheric pressure of 14.7 lbs. Per Square Inch that costs $150 or a camera that lives under a pressure of 7891.2 lbs PSI  and costs $59,000.

 

Anybody notice the lower right photo is a coat jammed it the doorway?

What say you about the coat?  Trying to seal water out?

the door is marked "X" meaning it has to remain closed to preclude lighting being seen at night during "darken ship" hours. Don't know why the coat would be there however unless the jamb were damaged from earlier combat exposure.

It is probably the curtain just inside the door to prevent light pollution

Never though of a black out curtain!  Good shape for 77 years. I  watched a Nat Park survey deep into the Arizona interior in officers country and there was papers in a deck and a coat on a hanger in  officers cabin.

True, but you would THINK that dealing with robbers and knowing the history,  the banks would spend a bit more then $150 for a camera?  Just sayin'.
