Four photos from Jim Strong

This photo was taken around 1954 in front of the "old white hangar"- Hangar 13 - "the garage"- and features (Left to Right) Cal Warren, Jim Strong, Barry Gee. We were playing baseball in front of the hangar ( the Chestnut Road side) when this shot was set up.
The photo was taken by Gerry Wakeham who worked for one of the airlines and occasionally submitted articles to one of the St. John's papers - the Telegram I think.
