Today was a wet and soggy day. I’m usually a fan of days like today when I can enjoy them from a window looking out. Unfortunately I had to be out in it today. Since I couldn’t enjoy the rain from my living room window, the nearest window would have to do.
While I was out, I ran into a gentlemen who was having an enlargement done. As the attendant behind the counter placed the enlargement on the counter, I was amazed at the photo that I saw.
This fellow, while making the rounds at some flee market, was able to purchase a small stack of old Navy photos. In the stack was about 4 or 5 shots of the surrender of Japan aboard the USS Missouri. He was making reprints to put on display, and possibly sell. I looked at the originals, and I’m no antique dealer, but they looked authentic to my untrained eye. All I could say is “What a find”. I hope they are the real thing, and wished him the best.
