JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

One photo this week, it's of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Campbell, which is home ported in Portsmouth, NH. The ship is a 270' medium endurance cutter. Who knows where Johnny G will end up next.

I am always looking for photos of old Stoneham (Mass) apparatus, incidents or members for my personal collection if anyone can help. A digital scan is perfectly fine, I don't need an original as long as the scan is big enough to print out. I also can scan photos, slides and negatives and then give them back to you if that is easier. CLICK FOR EMAIL.
