 Collection — Multiple Containers
Identifier: 2014-02-06
The Richard A. Arensberg Photograph Collection is a small collection consisting of two unrelated photographs. One photograph depicts a Gilmore gas station, circa 1930s-1940s. The photograph is black-and-white and measures 10x14 inches. It is not a vintage print but was printed circa 1990s-2000s. The image shows one man filling his car with gas while another man looks on. The license plate on the car is for Washington, indicating that the gas station was probably located somewhere in Washington. Signs are visible for Gilmore Gasoline and Lion Head motor oil. The second photograph depicts three North American F-86s flying in formation near Mount Fuji in Japan. The photo is black-and-white and measures 8x10 inches. A note on the back reads: "Taken with a 4x5 Speed Graphic Camera, standing at the back of a C-119 Flying Boxcar Aircraft, first flight into Japn circa 1954, Yokota Airbase" signed by Duane H. Schovley, cameraman.
