Item #703

Black oversized 18 x 12.5” album with “Mr. and Mrs. WILLIAM T. SMITH” stamped on the lower right corner of the front cover in gold, along with “Photographs.” This large album contains around 400 black-and-white photos from Panama during World War II. Photos mainly show men of the Shore Patrol of the U.S. Navy during inspections, but also at a banquet, relaxing, and at the shooting range. The shooting range pictures, and a couple of pictures of William posing with his pistol, are because William was part of the U.S. Secret Service Uniformed Force Pistol Team. There are also photos of William with his wife, and his friends with their wives, along with children. There are also commercial photos of areas in Panama, including ships transiting the Panama Canal, Hotel Washington, Cristobal High School, a hospital, air terminal, and even photos from the 1946 Carnival in Panama. There are a couple of pages of interesting photos of indigenous people in Panama, who seem to have been involved in harvesting and selling or trading bananas. William took several photos of the men, women, and children of this group, many of whom are only partially dressed. Towards the end of the album there are also photos from Kitty Hawk, Nags Head, and Roanoke Island in North Carolina. Photos measure between 2 x 2.5” and 10 x 8” and are held to the pages with corner tabs. Some of the photos include annotations on the back, but not all. Around 28 photos are loose, and up to around 50 appear to be missing.
