The Martelle Collection; Adak in 1943-44

Photographs made by Martelle's when they were stationed on Adak in the 19540's. Re-photographed from their scrapbooks by Michael Gordon and the negatives subsequently scanned with a Polaroid Sprintscan 35 to preserve as much detail as possible.

Description of Photographs

(By Michael Gordon:) The descriptions are not ultra precise; they are what I recollect from exploring the areas. The photographs were made by a married couple, rare on Adak at that time, but without much annotation as to what was what and where was where.
