Last month, a good old friend was buried in Arlington Memorial Cemetery.
Elton Hailey, was a close friend of my grandparents and family in general. During the preparations for the memorial service, I was handed a large stack of photographs from his WWII experience in the Pacific and some vignettes of his youth. Seeing a few details of his past shed light not only on his life, but the times in general.
Visit my Flickr page for a better presentation of the images themselves.
This street scene is not labeled, but it appears to be from the collection in the Pacific in 1940's.
