This is a large collection, 78 photographs of northern Adak island.  Each was scanned at high resolution, dust and scratch filtered, then reduced for storage and display by Michael Gordon.   Each slide is from 400 to 700 pixels wide, so they are still rather large; when zoomed they are typically 1300 pixels wide.

Start the slide show by clicking on START below this paragraph. Each page includes in its title bar the file name of the photo itself for easier selection.

Each photo is clickable; clicking on the photo advances you to the next photo. Below each photo is a set of links (buttons) to advance, return, or exit the slide show. Each photo includes a button to ZOOM to a larger size.

A thumbnail gallery is available for visually selecting photos. If you choose this option, clicking a thumbnail puts you into the slide show at the photo chosen; from there the slide show proceeds with the remainder of the show.
